Shelf Unbound


June/July 2017

Welcome to the Library


When I was growing up my mother would drive my brother and me to the library once a week during the summer. The library allowed us to check out six books at a time – for me this was two Happy Hollister mysteries, a classic and a history book related to where we would be traveling on our summer vacation (these two were required by my mom), and two other books that I would discovery at random as I combed the shelved. It seems magical as I recall it – the whole wide world and all its adventure and knowledge right there for the picking. In this issue we interview three authors whose books include the library as a main character.
