Libraries are long-term storage bins of knowledge, and there is as much meaning folded behind covers as there is in the transcendental number Pi (3.14159…). In celebration of this year’s true Pi Day, (3.14.15), Brad OH Inc. and I are proud to release Between the Shelves: A Tribute to Libraries by Edmonton Writers, now available on Amazon and Createspace!
In these 11 short pieces, Edmonton authors take us on a tributary journey into the past, present and future to explore the richness hiding between the shelves. Each piece has a different take on what libraries have to offer: a source of wisdom, a place for community, and so much more. So find a quiet corner, slip between the pages and embark on a journey that will change the way you look at libraries.
As a further tribute, all proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to support the Edmonton Public Library, which won the Library Journal’s Library of the Year award in 2014.
“I ransack public libraries,
& find them full of sunken treasure.”
