This Carnegie-funded library opened in 1915. It is named for Charles Sumner, a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts. The library has received historic designation from the City of Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A 2004 renovation refurbished or reclaimed many historical building features. Before 1915, the library was located in a rented room at 901 6th Avenue North.
