Libraries and Culture

by BruceHH on May 29, 2010

This work is a lot more interesting than I thought. Easily read with several illustrations of library layouts and pictures of libraries that were established as a result of Andrew Carnegie's donations, it provides additional insight into woman's history. It explains the regional differences in libraries and the ways in which architecture affected the public's use of and views of the library. Those interested in American and Women's studies will find the book's discussion of the treatment of women and their reaction to the library design enlightening.
