Review: The Library at Mount Char

The Library at Mount Char
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wholly original, quite unsettling, & darkly funny, this is the best scifi / fantasy fiction novel I’ve read in ages! Scott Hawkins has managed to cram an entire new mythology into a single volume without ever making the reader feel overloaded. Quite strange, but utterly delightful. Lions, tigers, and librarians, oh my!

Women in Library History

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association presents the Women of Library History project.  The project highlights valued women in libraries, past and present.

Read about the contributions of these important women in librarianship.  For example, the March 1st entry is for Jean Arnot, Australian librarian and activist for equal pay for women.  She worked for the State Library of New South Wales (formerly the Public Library of New South Wales) for over 47 years.
