Miller on the New York Public Library, the working class

Miller with model
A man by the name of Andrew Carnegie funded the libraries of New York around 1900. Henry Miller, in his collection "Colossus of Maroussi", sounds off on what the library did for the working class,

"He's dead now, and he left us a chain of libraries which makes the working people more intelligent, more cultured, more informed; in short, more miserable and unhappy then they ever were."

Listen yourself.
