28. I was the beneficiary of a Carnegie Library in my youth.

In fact, one of the ways you can tell the older generation didn't necessarily have library access was how they ALWAYS called it The Carnegie Library.

Before him, most libraries in this country were simply collections of books that someone had gathered together over time and donated to some organization. The free library with a wide selection of books that we all expect these days is very much thanks to Andrew Carnegie.
