Great Books to Celebrate National Library Week

Library_GirlReads_400Celebrate National Library Week (April 12-18) with some of these terrific odes to libraries and librarians and the unique thrill of losing yourself in a book. Libraries mean different things in different novels: In Mobile Library, a library on wheels is a boy’s way of literally leaving his troubles behind, in The Librarian, violent gangs fight over books that are supposed to have magical powers, and in The Time-Traveler’s Wife, a real-life library is practically a main character.

And in some fantastic nonfiction reads, librarians discuss their love of books, the quirks of working in a public library, and history’s lost libraries, as well as the most beautiful libraries ever built.
