Carnegie Library – A Pittsburgh Childhood Memory

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – As a child growing up in Pittsburgh, we all seem to remember that family trip or school trip to the Carnegie Library.

On Saturday night, NewsRadio 1020 KDKA Host Rick Bergman decided he wanted to revisit the history behind Andrew Carnegie and the library.

He spoke with Robert J. Gangewere who wrote, “Palace of Culture: Andrew Carnegie’s Museums and Library in Pittsburgh.”

You can find this book at the museum and most local book stores.

    I go to the library twice a week. My wife was a librarian for 16 years. They are vital research centers, so that we have a culture that is moire enriched that what you can find with Google or Wikipedia.

    You cannot possibly find everything online. Part of the reason we have the media and propaganda problems we do now is nobody opens a book anymore and does real research before they open their mouth. Internet information relies too heavily on blogs and opinion…when an assortment of real research material finds real answers to the problems we face today (as they always have). Internet only research is lazy research. I think libraries do need to evolve like everyone else to a cloud type of platform… but the intangibles are the ability to hold the book in your hand which the paperless society can never replace.
