The Library Book
The Library Book By Orlean, Susan Book - 2018 | First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition

I listened to the audiobook on RB Digital. The use of the Los Angelos Central Library fire was a great way to tell the story of libraries and their role in communities. Interspersed between the fire, arson investigation, and trial, are stories about how a book burns, how a library is created, the library as a community hub, the future of libraries, and other stories.
I enjoyed it. It was a good choice while waiting for our library to reopen during this CoVid pandemic.
