Familiar landmarks in hundreds of American towns, Carnegie libraries today seem far from controversial. However, Abigail A. Van Slyck shows that the classical facades and symmetrical plans of these buildings often mask a complex and contentious history. "This well-written and extensively researched work is a welcome addition to the history of architecture, librarianship, and philanthropy".--Joanne Passet, JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY. 79 photos.
