It probably won’t surprise you to learn that libraries are some of our favorite places here at The Reading Room! After all, libraries are dedicated to the same love of reading that inspires us to keep posting about books on this website. We’ve decided to do homage to our friends in the world of libraries by compiling this list full of the best library books and librarian books. You’ll find non-fiction, surreal stories, mysteries, and inspirational tales on this library book list.
Libraries are comfortable places for us readers. One library in Spencer, Iowa became a comfortable place for a neighborhood cat, too - and you can read the amazing true story in Vicki Myron and Bret Witter’s great book “Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World.” Dewey’s charming story will remind you why you love librarian books so much.
Since they hold so many volumes, it’s easy to imagine that libraries have secrets. Maybe that’s why so many great mystery stories have used libraries as their settings! Our list includes Ian Sansom’s lighthearted and funny “The Case of the Missing Books” as well as Jo Dereske’s compelling “Miss Zukas and the Library Murders.”
Some of the world’s greatest writers have tried their hand at writing library books. Acclaimed author Haruki Murakami’s “The Strange Library” is a surreal and fascinating vision of a mysterious library. This short and interesting library book is a must-read for Murakami fans.
If you love reading, you’ll love this library book list! With can’t-miss selections from almost every literary genre, this bookshelf is crammed with the very best library books and librarian books. Head to your local bookstore and pick up a copy of any of them today - or support your local library by stopping by to borrow the book! Your librarian will thank you.
