The Carnegie Building opened in 1904 as the Brantford Public Library. In the early 1990s, the library moved its collection to a newer facility. In 1998, Wilfrid Laurier University purchased the vacant building to be used as a new liberal arts college in Brantford.  The building was renovated extensively to create classrooms and office space while preserving the historic character of the building.
