The library book

The Library Book is a collection of stories, essays, and excerpts from longer fiction texts that talk about the great meaning of the library in the life of an individual and the community. . The authors are famous names from Anglo-Saxon literary world; some remember with nostalgia the periods when they were visiting the public library, others speak of their fascination with the multitude of books that one may borrow without limitations, they recall individual books they would never have met without the help of the library… England is densely crisscrossed with a network of public libraries, but lately we ever more often come across information about the closing down of public libraries in this country; in 2012 200 units were closed down (see). The publishing of the book was supported by the UK’s Reading Agency which with its many activities tries to promote reading and support the libraries. (VVŠ)
