----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, 362 pages, b&w photos, ---"A local library, passport to a larger world for its individual patrons, is also a democratic institution whose contribution to the strength of a community is out of all proportion to its size or membership. Several thousand Carnegie libraries were built a century ago when Andrew Carnegie, who had risen from poverty to become the richest man in the world vowed to donate all his money before he died and set about giving millions of people around the world the same gift of reading he had with access to a library as a factory working boy. Across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and other corners of the English-speaking world, he created the free republic of libraries. This is the story of one of them. By tracing evolution of library service in the Canadian town of Bracebridge from 1874 to the present day within the broad sweep of larger cultural and economic patterns, Boyer s engaging book provides a specific example of the universal transformation of books and information technologies and the libraries that house them from the 19th to 21st centuries. Most readers will find endearing and tantalizing parallels with their own library experience, wherever they live. Written to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Andrew Carnegie Library in Bracebridge in 2008, Boyer s book is an inspired and engaging effort to show patterns and perils that probably hold true for most local libraries although some of the dramatic and comedic episodes here are surely unique. This story is so rich it could be a feature movie"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------softcover, about 8.5 x 11 inches, a near Fine copy, 208 pages, colour and b&w photos, ---" Ontario's Ghost Town Heritage features the most interesting or "ghostly" destinations from Ron Brown's earlier volumes, all with updated information and images, along with newly "discovered" ghost towns. In all, it includes 80 accessible locations throughout Ontario. As international travel becomes more difficult, there is a renewed interest in exploring our own backyard. Ontario historian Ron Brown visits vestiges of once-thriving towns and villages. Some still maintain small resident populations, while others exist only as abandoned buildings and foundation ruins. All have in common that they are "ghosts" of their former greatness and that their images evoke their lost legacies. Sketch maps by the author guide the reader within each geographic region. "---, ---contents include: 1. Trails to the East [Eastern Ontario] : --Allisonville, Aultsville, Balaclava (Renfrew County), Bedford Mills, Blairton, Brudenell, Corbyville, Craigmont, Eldorado, Fleetwood, Foymount, Glanmire, Herron's Mills, Lemieux, Marlbank, Millbridge, Newfoundout, Port Milford, Wilbur -- 2.
