Great, readable information about Carnegie and Carnegie Libraries. I appreciated the different sections. Personal note: Berlin, Wisconsin's Carnegie Library photo was next to the Ukiah, California's Carnegie Library photo! Uncanny!

Recommend For: Librarians/Local History/American History/Library History

This is a wonderful chronicle of the Carnegie Libraries. I only wish that it had more photos of then and now.
