In her new book, As You Will: Carnegie Libraries of the South Pacific, artist Mickey Smith documents the historic legacy of 23 Carnegie Libraries erected across the South Pacific, including 18 in Aotearoa New Zealand. These were named after the successful Scottish-American industrialist Andrew Carnegie, whose philanthropic trust established 2,509 library buildings throughout the English-speaking world between 1886 and 1917.

Featuring 47 original full-colour photographs as well as 23 historic images, and short texts by AUT Professor of Architecture, Charles Walker and Te Tuhi Artistic Director, Gabriela Salgado, this publication is a memorial to the Carnegie legacy, capturing a philanthropic project in decline. This publication accompanied the exhibition Mickey Smith: Cultivate it as you will, 2015.
