Reading behind bars by Jill Grunenwald confirms my suspicion that all libraries are more alike than different.

Grunenwald writes about her two years’ experience as a prison librarian in a low-security state prison west of Cleveland. While of course the prison setting presents challenges, despite everything she is determined to meet the information needs of the inmates, who are as diverse a lot, but charming and manipulative as you would meet in any setting.

This book just confirms my belief as a librarian that everyone deserves access to libraries, and that such access has the power to enrich anyone’s life.
