A Taste of Life in a Public Library
Ever wonder what life in a public library is REALLY like? Try reading Free for All: Oddballs, Geeks, Gangstas in the Public Library by Don Borchert. Borchert works in a public library in southern California and offers a fresh perspective on the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant life that is the public library. With many anecdotes Borchert shows that a library is not just a collection of materials but it is the people who come to use all of its resources and the staff who work so hard behind the scenes to make it possible.
