Learn All About Steel, Libraries,

and Andrew Carnegie


Livingston Library Community, 

September is National Library Card Sign Up Month! This month, in addition to utilizing all of the great services your library card provides you, we invite you to join us on Monday, September 11th at 7pm for the lecture, “Andrew Carnegie: From Steel to the Building of Libraries.”

Between 1886 and 1919, Andrew Carnegie donated more than $40,000,000 to the building of 1,689 libraries for both small and large communities across the country. During this lecture, we will explore how Carnegie gave away more than 90% of his fortune accumulated through railroad and steel earnings becoming a major philanthropist. Carnegie’s local libraries in New Jersey and New York will also be discussed.
