Truth be told, it was the title of this book that piqued my interest & compelled me to read it. I wish that I could say that this book is all about the intrepid secret operation organized by the librarians in Timbuktu to save 377,000 precious manuscripts, but it is not. A good read if you enjoy politics. Liked it but didn't love it!

Rating: 3.5⭐

Today I went digging around in the old files to see if I could find our Trustee bylaws. Instead, I found this amazing list of all the Trustees since 1897! The longest term served was 33 years.

Crazeedi That is very cool!! 1d
NHLibrarian @Crazeedi It made my day. There was also circulation and librarian pay data going back to 1916! 22h
Crazeedi @NHLibrarian that's so great to have those records! 18h

My sister-in-law got me a giftcard to one of my favorite local indie bookstores! She lives in a different state, so she must have called them up and the store mailed it to me with these cute bookmarks and a handwritten card with a note she must have given over the phone. What a sweet and thoughtful gift! (And they ship too if you don‘t have any local indies in your area and want to support a small business!)

Hooked_on_books What a great name for a bookstore! 2d

The fourth book in the Invisible Library was a touch more serious than the others, and the changes to the status quo at the end were fantastic. I love seeing the different worlds & all the various political structures at work as well.

Nina takes a leap of faith to #VivalaVida in Scotland, following her bibliophile heart to accomplish her dream of having her own book mobile.

Redwritinghood While I loved The Reader, I‘m not sure about it as an audiobook. I would go with 5d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I didn‘t know this book was missing from my life until @Cinfhen recommended it. It‘s such a perfect sendup to the pleasures of reading. This book made me laugh and made me remember why books are so magical (and why some just...aren‘t). Spence‘s voice is both hilarious and genuine.

PS When I went to the library to check this out, it was turned front-facing on the shelf - and we all know what that means when librarians do that. ❤️
