Did you know that Illinois ranks third in the total number of libraries built with grants from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation? Annette Baldwin is a researcher and has performed first-person historical portrayals since 1986. Recently she’s been traveling and recording the rich cultural life of these beautiful and often utilitarian structures and their significance to their communities. Some of these libraries are in various stages of repair and expansion in an attempt to honor the old as well as challenge it.
Travel the back roads with Ms. Baldwin as she explores the history and architecture of these wonderful places during
St. Charles Library’s Books@Noon on Wednesday, October 17, 2007, in the downstairs Meeting Room. Bring your lunch. Coffee and tea will be served.
