A Review From Your Local Librarian #14
“The Library Book” by Susan Orlean
Section in the library: Adult non-fiction
In April of 1986, the Los Angeles Public Library suffered from a terrible fire that destroyed and damaged hundreds of thousands of books. If you love books and libraries you should give this book a try. Susan Orlean does a wonderful job telling the history of this library, how it continued after the fire, and how libraries are more than just books.
