BOOK REVIEW! The Lions of Fifth Avenue – by Fiona Davis
What is it like working behind the scenes of one of the world’s largest libraries? As a librarian, this book was one I was excited to read. It gets at some of the politics, issues, and downsides of working at a massive library. You also get a very deep look into how certain libraries work, especially Research Libraries where much of the material is not available for checkout. Along with that story, you also get to see the perspective of a young wife who struggles to find her place in the world outside being a mother. This is a struggle many people face as they change roles over the course of their lives. This is another story that begins in one time period and shifts to a later one giving a deeper look at Laura, our narrator and main character’s, unique linkage to the New York Public Library. A fun and exciting book to read.
