A moment of giddiness is captured in this 1960 photograph of the Reference Room in Sacramento's Central Library at 828 "I" Street. The library was built in 1917/18 through 100,000 dollar grant from Scottish-American steel baron and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie who was responsible for the construction of more than 2,500 libraries throughout the world. The building's architect was Loring Rixford of San Francisco.
