of these librariesThe first section of the book can get athese librariesThe first section of the book can get a tedious at times as it lists by name every founding board member and their political and religious affiliation In addition each and every librarian is discussed However in the later sections of the book this information does become relevant as the driving forces behind collection choices are discussed Despite the rather dry subject litany Mr Wiegand portrays a marvelous picture of how libraries were founded and run in rural America in the late 19th and early 20th century and in the end I enjoyed the section often than notThe role of the library as a place within the communities of rural America is also given a fair amount of ink Interestingly enough many activities which still take place today in my local library system had their roots in these first fledgling small town libraries Collection building is given an interesting perusal Wayne Wiegand built a data base to cross reference the collections of the four libraries he profiles plus one additional library of the era He then gives a prose comparison of all the libraries and compares their coll.

Ections with publications such as Booklist which were put out by national and state library organizations to see how the libraries followed the collection building trends recommended by their professional organizationsI would have happily read twice the given information pertaining to how each of the libraries dealt with the major social issues of their era This period in American history saw many pivotal issues such as the rise of labor unions and socialism women s suffrage and prohibition The efforts of various national and local groups to suppress certain specific works of literature and the ongoing battle against fiction in favor of non fiction is discussed in interesting detail with special emphasis given to how each of the profiled libraries handled the issues This section was definitely the strongest of the bookThere were may titles Which I Discovered For First Time As I Learned I discovered for the first time as learned library holdings of this era and which I look forward to reading In addition the book sparked a desire to learn about Andrew Carnegie who provided funding to erect the buildings in which three of the profiled libraries were housed At about 250 pages this book is a uick look at a seldom discussed element of American history which I as a bibliophile and lover of small local libraries found well worth my while Wiegand characterizes his work as a history of the library in the life of the user but I think it s really of a history of the library in the life of the community a narrative history of the growth and expansion of four rural Midwestern public libraries within and alongside their towns Very interesting facts about the history of libraries in rural America This nonfiction read is a bit slow bogged down by insignificant details Although Wiegand barely mentions Dubuue in his new book Main Street Public Library Community Places and Reading Spaces in the Rural Heart.
