Remembering Andrew Carnegie's Library Legacy
"Andrew Carnegie was once the richest man in the world. Coming as a dirt poor kid from Scotland to the U.S., by the 1880s he'd built an empire in steel -- and then gave it all away: $60 million to fund a system of 1,689 public libraries across the country." NPR 08/01/13
