This page sheet for the Pack Memorial Library (Asheville, North Carolina) from the out-of-print first edition gem "Cultural Gems: An Eclectic Look at Unique US Libraries." The highly followed critical review, "The Bloomsbury Review Booklover's Guide wrote, "A pictorial architectural survey of . . . interesting libraries. The accompanying text provides a patchwork-quilt history of the growth of libraries in the United States, with insights into how different communities decided to provide public library service . . . every kind of library is represented."
