Wick Library

Wick Carnegie Public Library was built in 1897 and has the proud distinction of being a Carnegie Library. With its beautiful Victorian architecture, it is arguably one of the finest, if not finest looking buildings in the town of Wick.

Originally the library contained a Museum upstairs, evidence of this remains, not just by the sign above the front door, but in the shape of a famous 10ft stuffed Crocodile that is still housed in its Reference room. The crocodile was preserved by a taxidermist in 1909 and then donated to a Highlands town as a museum exhibit.
