Recommended Read – The Library Book by Susan Orlean

the Library book bookcover

“The main character in this wonderful narrative work of non-fiction is the Los Angeles Public Library, specifically its gorgeous central library. The author interweaves stories of the library’s history, of the catastrophic 1986 fire that nearly destroyed it and the man who was accused of setting that fire, and of the daily life of its current staff and patrons. The result is a love letter to all libraries. Put your hold on this one now–it comes out in October!”
–Terzah, Collection Development
