Annual conference sessions regarding the preservation of historic Carnegie Libraries were initiated, at the 2004 National Preservation Conference held in Louisville, by then-Louisville Historic Preservation Officer Joanne Weeter. This first meeting was an "affinity session" held in the historic Main Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, one of the 1,689 Carnegie Libraries constructed in the United States.
An affinity session was also held at the conference hotel for the 2005 National Preservation Conference in Portland, Oregon. The Carnegie Libraries session held at the 2006 National Preservation Conference was the first "educational session" held. Attendance has steadily grown for these sessions, from about 30 in 2004 to more than 100 in 2006.
