Madeleine Lefebvre is Librarian of Saint Mary's University in Halifax Nova Scotia and a former President of the Canadian Library Association. She's also been a professional actress (a court stenographer in a John Cusack movie and Queen Elizabeth in radio commercials) and now...she's an author.
Her new book is "The Romance of Libraries"; an entertaining and often inspiring look at couples who've met in libraries, stolen a kiss in libraries, married in libraries, broken up in libraries, and those who've passed along the love of libraries to their friends and their children. It's proof that in this day and age of virtual libraries and e-braries, there's still nothing like the wonderful look, smell, feel, and touch of the library and its papery contents.
You'll enjoy "The Romance of Libraries"...not to mention it's a great gift for that special someone on Valentine's Day. Scarecrow Press, Inc.
