A compilation of some wonderful photos and essays that celebrate American public libraries. My only complaint: I wish that this book included Canadian libraries as well.

"As the last truly democratic space in America, where there are no entry fees, judgments, or barriers, public libraries offer a tour of our society’s ill and ill. We library workers are, in practical terms, surrogates for shuttered schools, parks, hospitals, and homes." --Dorothy Lazard

"We started stocking paperbacks, which kids can check out without a library card… Now no one has to leave the bookmobile without a book. That should be a librarian’s primary job: to get books in people’s hands." –Kelvin K. Selders (NE Nevada Bookmobile)
