THE MAN WHO LOVED LIBRARIES: The Story of Andrew Carnegie

by Andrew Larsen, illustrated by Katty Maurey

Have you 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 the life of many of our towns and cities, bringing books to everyone who wanted to read. The story of one of the world’s richest men and greatest philanthropists is told in simple, inspiring prose, with beautiful folk style illustrations by Katty Maurey. A truly amazing life story, which includes two pages of Carnegie facts at the end.
