Carnegie Libraries of Scotland

Postby Paul Clerkin » Tue Sep 03, 2002 10:31 pm

An illustrated guide to the architecture and history of Carnegie Libraries in Scotland, where Andrew Carnegie was born and where he began his worldwide library donations. Scotland was the place were the very first Carnegie libraries in the world were established. The libraries at Dunfermline and Grangemouth were built before he began his American benefactions in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. The architects of the libraries designed many beautiful buildings in the various forms that were in vogue in Scotland at the turn of the last century, mostly borrowing from historical themes, which are thoroughly explored here.
