<i>The Library Book</i> is a collection of 23 short pieces extolling the virtues of the public library. It is an easy and enjoyable read, however it was slightly more political than I had expected it to be – it is evidently a response to the current library closures throughout the UK and there is an obvious (yet unobtrusive) 'anti-Tory' sentiment running throughout which, although valid, did sometimes seem unnecessary. While the collection is relatively optimistic about the fate of our libraries, this confidence did at times seem forced, and I found myself wondering if this anthology is more of a eulogy than a defence.
