Dispatches from a Public Librarian

by Scott Douglas

Thoughtful and funny! Perfect for light reading. You will gain an appreciation (and no small measure of sympathy)for your local librarian. Mr. Douglas invites us to his branch of a California library detailing the odd happenings and very "colorful" patrons that are "all in a day's work".

I really enjoyed this. I liked the characters and experienced some genuine tension and scares!

I can easily imagine a group of Victorian women, seated before a blazing fire, listening intently as one of their number reads this story aloud, while shivering and exclaiming softly at the more unnerving parts!

The atmosphere is eerie, and although the pacing may be more suited to a story being read aloud, it's still very enjoyable.
