As you can see by the sneak peak in the article above, the fascinating content matter of the book coupled with Mike’s superb story-telling abilities will easily make this title a must-have for library history enthusiasts.

We’ll update you again when Rowman & Littlefield  releases the book in the near future…

Best,

Brett

P.S. You’ll remember that Mike wrote a splendid post for us last year about the Cranbrook Public Library:
