<a href="http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2010/09/heathman_hotel_library_is_one_1.html">Oregonlive.com</a> relates this story about a unique library and one enthusiastic librarian. "Guests who wander up to the <a href="http://www.heathmanhotel.com/">Heathman Hotel's</a> mezzanine discover one of the most exclusive libraries in the country: 4,000 volumes, all signed by the author and most of them first editions. What's more, there's only one way to get a book in the collection: The author must spend a night in the hotel -- no exceptions. And now, thanks to a 20-year-old librarian, the books are more accessible than ever."
