Quiet, Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian, by Scott Douglas. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie.
Quiet, Please - I was recommended this by my boss while I was working for the City Archives during the summer and was contemplating library school (lets just say that plan isn’t going anywhere…for now). Apparently this book was a big hit with her (an archivist) and all the librarians in the city. Finally getting around to reading it.
The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - this one the Gentleman Caller had to read for his Aboriginal Education class. I picked it up while he was writing his paper on it…and now I’m reading it.
