All of this library love got us thinking about our favorite books about libraries and librarians, and so we decided to put together a list of them. Featuring cats, bookmobiles, archivists, time travelers, even Dracula—these 15 books will inspire a renewed appreciation for a place that is, in the words of Jamie Ford in his novel, “like a candy store where everything is free.”

Click on the book cover of any of the books below to read a summary.  If it strikes your fancy, you can even place it on hold directly from the website!
