'A great library is freedom. And that freedom must not be compromised. It must be available to all who need it, and that's everyone, when they need it, and that's always.'--Ursula le Guin

Libraries. We love them. Tyrants tremble before them. There are children in the world desperate for them, and people who are willing to put their own lives at risk to save them.

In this book, you'll discover the oldest libraries, and the largest ones. You'll find libraries in battlefields, in Antarctica and even in space. You'll come across libraries in boats, on the backs of donkeys and elephants, and in telephone booths. And you will meet amazing people who will do almost anything to take libraries to people who need them

In this celebration of libraries, Shruthi Rao and Anuradha Jagalur bring together inspiring and fascinating stories to delight all those who love books and libraries.
