"A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert."
I love the stories about Carnegie libraries across the country.
You can CLICK HERE to read a bit of the history.
Or HERE FOR A FASCINATING STORY about the secret apartments at the New York Public Library's branches, funded by Andrew Carnegie.
I grew up near Clarksdale, MS, where a Carnegie Library is still used as a library.
There's a beautiful Carnegie Library in downtown St. Petersburg, a library I frequent occasionally.
If you'd like to visit some of these libraries, there's a state-by-state list HERE.
