The Library Book, by Susan Orlean

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, I’m biased. I’m a librarian, sucker for all things library. And this book defines all things library! It is a magnificently researched and sensitively wrought tale of the epic 1986 fire in the Los Angeles public library. It is hard to describe more deeply than that because Orlean goes off on such a wide array of fascinating tangents. Suffice it to say that it is a beautiful love letter to libraries, librarians and library patrons everywhere. Thank you, Susan Orlean, for your important message! ~ Ms Dimmick
