I knew ...

... that Andrew Carnegie funded the building of many libraries. The Holmesburg library where I spent many a pleasant afternoon as a kid was one of them. I din't know he built them in Britain also (though it makes sense: he was from Scotland). So this is sad: Impoverished shelf life. (Dave Lull, yet again.)

  1. I was at the House of Commons today at a library meeting, invited by Tim Coates of The Good Library Blog. Carnegie's name came up a lot. He's obviously some kind of library icon.
