Remembering Mary Oliver...
"to live in this world

to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go."

The Library Book centers around the devestating fire at the Los Angeles Public Library on April 29, 1986 that destroyed over 400,000 books, but ultimately it's a love letter to the public library system and the significant contribution they bring to communities all over the country. Part history of libraries, part true crime, The Library Book will appeal to history buffs and bibliophiles alike.
