Worlds strongest librarian strengthens writing voice in new memoir

“Dont share your thoughts about librarians leading bored, desperate lives with Josh Hanagarne. As an employee at the Salt Lake City Main Library, with a specialty on third-floor volumes encompassing medicine, finance, psychology and cooking — “the problem-solving books, as he puts it — hes exposed to the fullest possible range of human folly, tragedy and glory. “The public library contains multitudes. And each person who visits contains multitudes as well, hell tell you. “I watched a man chew on his own ponytail with such boyish exuberance that it gagged him. Then he asked me if we had any tissue paper.” (via San Jose Mercury News)
