NCompass Live: Nebraska's Carnegie Libraries: The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful - Recorded Online Session 


This is a chronological overview of the Carnegie Libraries constructed in Nebraska with background information about the requirements for these grants (yes, there were local requirements) and comments about the architecture and history of these structures. The Bad is the downside of the Carnegie donations, including the building designs and expectation of outside funding for library capitol projects. Speaker: Laureen Riedesel, Director, Beatrice Public Library.
