Free for All by Don Borchert

Borchert's loosely collected book of anecdotes about his life at a public library in California will be of interest to library workers of all sorts, though there's not much here readers won't have seen multiple times in the blogosphere. Those in public libraries especially will find commiserate with his tales of middle schoolers gone wild, parents who pathologically lie, and coworkers who are all about the politics. Some will play the I-can-do-better game: “Drug dealers?! I had a prostitute giving $10 blowjobs in the bathroom!” Some stories are of the heartwarming variety, though they are outnumbered. -Inanna
