Carnegie Libraries Across America - A Public Legacy by Theodore Jones (HC, 1997)
Content Description: In 1893, the doors opened on the first Carnegie library. Not particularly newsworthy at the time-outside of the small town of Fairfield, Iowa, that is-the library event can be seen, in retrospect, as a watershed for democracy in America. Book has numerous black/white photographs and includes bibliographical references and index.
