Carnegie Libraries Book Launch Celebration in Big Timber
Join us for a celebration of the new book “The Best Gift: Montana’s Carnegie Libraries” at Big Timber Carnegie Library on September 7th, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
There will be drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a book signing.
“The Best Gift: Montana’s Carnegie Libraries” profiles each of Montana’s 17 Carnegie libraries. Andrew Carnegie provided funding to help communities build their libraries between 1901 and 1922.
Today, fifteen of those libraries are still standing.
Author Kate Hampton brings their stories to life and shows how those libraries in turn impacted the people. The captivating photographs by Tom Ferris transport us to the libraries’ doorsteps.
The traveling exhibit will also be unveiled at the celebration. It will remain at the Big Timber Carnegie Library for the month of September.
