(Book Review) Improbable Libraries by Alex Johnson
By David Nilsen
Journalist Alex Johnson, son of two librarians, has just published an entertaining new book highlighting a variety of unusual libraries around the world. Improbable Libraries: A Visual Journey of the World’s Most Unusual Libraries (University of Chicago Press, 2015) takes readers on a photographic tour of these book repositories. Johnson talks about the role libraries have historically played in their communities, and how libraries big and small are adapting to continue to meet the needs of readers in the twenty-first century.
This is just a tiny sample of the amazing libraries and photos Johnson shares in his book. You need to see this book for yourself. If you live in Darke County, head to Greenville Public Library and check out Improbable Libraries (027 Johnson) today!
