Abstract
  • This paper explores the legacy and continued importance of joint-use libraries within the context of two early Carnegie Libraries at Homestead and Braddock, Pennsylvania. It argues that Andrew Carnegie's philanthropic efforts in the Pittsburgh region are cogent historical examples of successful joint-use libraries in the midst of challenging economic, political, and demographic turmoil.
