The Library Book   by Susan Orlean

An in-depth look at the role of libraries in today’s local communities, this book revolves around the unsolved mystery of who started the fire in the Los Angeles’ city library in 1986 which ultimately destroyed 400,000 books, and the author’s later re-examination of its investigation. It is a mystery story, history and social exploration as well as being a passionate tribute to libraries everywhere.
