How do you use your local library? Does it arrive at your door on the back of an elephant? Can it float down the river to you? Or does it occupy a phone booth by the side of the road? Public libraries are a cornerstone of modern civilization, yet like the books in them, libraries face an uncertain future in an increasingly digital world. Undaunted, librarians around the globe are thinking up astonishing ways of reaching those in reading need, whether by bike in Chicago, boat in Laos, or donkey in Colombia. Improbable Libraries showcases a wide range of unforgettable, never-before-seen images and interviews with librarians who are overcoming geographic, economic, and political difficulties to bring the written word to an eager audience. Alex Johnson charts the changing face of library architecture, as temporary pop-ups rub shoulders with monumental brick-and-mortar structures, and many libraries expand their mission to function as true community centers. To take just one example: the open-air Garden Library in Tel Aviv, located in a park near the city's main bus station, supports asylum seekers and migrant workers with a stock of 3,500 volumes in sixteen different languages. Beautifully illustrated with nearly two hundred and fifty color photographs, Improbable Libraries offers a breathtaking tour of the places that bring us together and provide education, entertainment, culture, and so much more. From the rise of the egalitarian Little Free Library movement to the growth in luxury hotel libraries, the communal book revolution means you'll never be far from the perfect next read.… (mais)

What every bibliophile loves to look at--photos of books and libraries! ( )

Great read on unusual libraries around the world! ( )

A really wonderful and fascinating look at unconventional library spaces around the world. Would recommend to fellow library science students or librarians who are interested in critically examining what makes a library and how we make our collections accessible to different patron groups. ( )

Lovely pictures, but the relatively light text left me wanting to know more about many of the libraries. I was also a bit surprised at the lack of coverage of the Seattle Public Library. ( )

An interesting look at libraries worldwide, big, small, travelling, static. Essentially a well-put-together picture book. ( )
