Do you know much about Andrew Carnegie? I'll be honest and admit I knew the name because of the book awards and the famous hall...but that was about it!
This story does the difficult job of exploring the life of a fascinating man, worthy of many books I'm sure! It teaches both about drive and perseverance, as well as giving back.
His family left Scotland when he was young and he worked incredibly hard, eventually becoming one of the richest people in America. By the time of his death he had given away close to 90% of his wealth. One huge focus of his philanthropy was building local libraries. 💙
A beautiful story that made me want to learn more about him...so I'll probably head back to the library and find an adult bio to follow this up!
