Excerpt from A Book of Carnegie Libraries For the delay that has made this volume so far behind the plates which it was designed to accompany I make no apology. A combination of circumstances has prevented its earlier com pletion, and it has seemed better to follow the lines originally laid down for the work, rather than to delay it for still further revision. Plates and text together may have at least an bistori cal value, and the library building development of the last dec ade might well be made the subject of a supplementary volume. The list Of plates printed to accompany the original portfolio is bound with the present volume, as it contains in handy form for reference the names of architects and in some cases the amount of Carnegie donations. In making up the book, however, it has seemed advisable to rearrange the plates somewhat, and the list cannot be used as an index to the illustrations. I am indebted to the publishers of the Centmy Magazine for their kind permission to reprint the valuable article by Mr. Mabie, and likewise to the publishers of the Criterion Magazine for the use of Dr. Bostwick's discussion of Carnegie Libraries and Good Reading. To the many friends in the library profession who so cheerfully aided me to secure the necessary data for the description of their buildings, and to all who have helped me to bring the work to its conclusion, I give my most sincere thanks.
