Hello! This post comes from Jeremy Glover, an intern who’s been working with the Adult Services Department over the last few months. This post lists titles from my bookmark titled “Libraries and Librarians,” which contains books, both fiction and nonfiction, that deal with libraries and librarians.
During my time here, I’ve come to more fully appreciate what libraries, and the librarians who staff them, can and do offer for their communities. In addition to being places to find, read, and discuss books, libraries are truly invaluable resources for information and learning. My hope is that some of these books can convey, and perhaps even instill, the same admiration and respect for libraries and librarians my time in the stacks has cultivated.
