Andrew Carnegie Interviews
In honor of the Library's Centennial, YCLD presented a series of talks with Andrew Carnegie, as portrayed by Dr. Jeffrey Smith, on the YCLD Facebook page. Dr. Smith is a professor of history at Lindenwood University in St Charles, MO, and has portrayed Carnegie in more than 150 venues, including Cambridge University in England, Carnegie libraries, universities, and public programs. Topics included democracy, libraries, business, and Diplodocus carnegii (otherwise known as Dippy the Dinosaur). Be sure to tune in! The videos will be available through March 24th.
