Tiny library's task: Offer raw material for hope
On a gloomy Tuesday afternoon, Tampa's oldest library is open for business. "West Tampa Free Public Library" are the words carved into the 1913 neo-classical building, originally funded by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation. It is one of almost 1,700 free libraries Carnegie built in this country in a time when book collections were private and not accessible to the people who needed them most.
