Librarians report

Two new memoirs on working libraries have been released - Free for all by Don Borchert and Quiet, Please by Scott Douglas. Both work in California libraries, but as a librarian I can report that some things seem to be universal. This does mean that some stories seem to repeat in a way. Borchert is a father and came to libraries after working a number of other jobs. Douglas is a young man, who started in libraries as a paraprofessional and went to library school as a result.

Both are fun, quick, cynical looks at working with the public.
