From its modest birth to the fire that nearly destroyed it and its eccentric leadership and loyal patrons, Susan Orlean's loving portrait of the L.A.. Central Library is a history threaded with a true crime tale and the appreciation of a long-time user. No longer just a repository of books, the modern library partners with social service organizations to assist its varied patrons with access to technology, employment opportunities, healthcare, housing, and many other essential resources.
