Oddballs, Geeks, and Gangstas in the Public LibraryBook - 2007
The public library - a haven of calm, source of information, home to the student, the geek and the aging librarian. Or so you might think.
Don Borchert's ten years as assistant librarian have taught him that a library is more than just a place to borrow books, it's also a place where people hide from the law, fall in love, fight, deal drugs, introduce their children to reading, look up porn and pursue their dreams. Borchett's hilarious memoir delves behind the bookshelves as he discovers the weird, dangerous and downright dirty world of a public library and the fearless civil servants who patrol its aisles.
