For #NationalLibraryWeek I’m shining a spotlight on amazing books I’ve read set in libraries or stories featuring librarians.
Books Set in Libraries
(and books about librarians)
Do you have a library card? Do you have more than one?
Do you have fond childhood memories of bringing home a stack of books from the library every few weeks?
As a child, did you participate in a summer reading program at your local library?
Have you taken your own children or grandchildren to story time at the library?
Have you ever gone to the library for quiet reading, writing, or study time?
Have you attended a book club at your library?
Is your library card one of the prized possessions in your wallet?
Did you use your library more or less during the Pandemic?
What percentage of the books you read every year are from the library?
Even though I’ve switched over to reading digitally, I consider myself a heavy library user. In fact, over 50% of the books I read in a year are from the library.
The BEST feature of using your library’s digital lending app (like Libby) is that there are NO library fines because the book automatically disappears (is returned) on the due date.
Another benefit is that you can link up multiple library cards. I have two library cards linked, one for my local library and one for my county library.
Do you borrow books physically or digitally from your library?
Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore, achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life.

What book do I need to add to this list? What is your favorite “set in a library’ read?
I have an entirely different list of books set in book shops!
Happy Reading Book Buddies!
“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke
“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.” ~Denise J Hughes
“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.” ~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.” ~Madeleine Riley, Top Shelf Text
