The Best Gift: Montana's Carnegie Libraries
10:45 AM
Montana Historical Society (east of the Capitol)
Description:
The Best Gift: Montana’s Carnegie Libraries author talk and book signing with Kate Hampton. Between 1910 and 1922, seventeen Montana communities built libraries with money given to them by the era's richest man, Andrew Carnegie. Fifteen of those libraries stand today, and their story is compellingly told in this new book by written by MHS Community Preservation Coordinator Kate Hampton and sponsored by the Montana History Foundation. Just as he did in Hand Raised: The Barns of Montana, photographer Tom Ferris provides stunning detail of both the classic and unusual architectural elements of these iconic buildings. Hand-drawn architectural renderings and other historical images combine to create a detailed portrait of Carnegie's rich legacy in Montana.
