  1. Have you read The Library Book by Susan Orlean? It’s about the fire at the Los Angeles Central Library in the 80s, and many things book and library related. The heroic efforts of people to salvage the damaged books is remarkable. Also, the effort to keep books that may only be read by one person but is deemed worth saving. It’s a very good book.
