The Man Who Loved Libraries

The Story of Andrew Carnegie

A real reminder of the value and power of libraries in today’s society and a wonderful book to be read by young and old alike

Schools’ Library Service Guernsey 

Ever wondered about the name inscribed at the entrance to your local library? Scottish born Andrew Carnegie’s gift of over 650 public libraries to the UK and Ireland changed many of our towns and cities for the better, bringing books to everyone who wanted to read. The story of one of the world’s greatest philanthropists is told in simple, inspiring prose, with beautiful illustrations by Katty Maurey. Children will learn that humble beginnings are no barrier to great achievement, and that giving back to our communities is its own reward! A truly amazing life story which includes two pages of Carnegie facts at the end. Andrew Larsen is the author of several children’s books, and lives in Toronto, Canada.
