Owing to the Society’s financial stringency, the museum was handed over to the government on perpetual loan.
The Carnegie Corporation made a grant to build a second storey on the wings of the Georgetown Public Free Library for the purpose of exhibiting the museum’s collections and the Carnegie Library building became the home for the RA&CS collection in 1936.
Sir Crossley T Rayner in his presidential address to the RA&CS meeting in January 1914 acknowledged the Carnegie Free library as “an admirably conducted institution which calls for the highest praise of those who administer it …” He recommended that the Society’s library should be run on the same basis as the Free Library.
Yet compared with the Public Free Library, the RA&CS had attractions which were not generally known.
The upkeep of the RA&CS Museum collection, which opened to the public in 1870, continued to be subsidised by the government until 1934.
The establishment of the Carnegie Free Library, free at the point of use, threatened the active support for the RA&CS Library.
