Large libraries. Small libraries. Suburban libraries. Rural Libraries. No matter the size, no matter the state, America's public libraries are the heart of our communities. This book is a wonderous collection of stories and photographs from 75 libraries chosen from hundreds of nominations sent from across the country. The advisory board includes Mary Pope Osborne, bestselling acclaimed author of the Magic Tree House books, Leslie Burger, President of the American Library Association, Nancy Kranich, past President of the American Library Association, and Sally Reed, Executive Director of Friends of Libraries USA, as well as many other leaders who cherish libraries. Henry Winkler, a well-known children's author and the inimitable 'Fonz' has even written a letter about his favorite childhood library.
