Description

Libraries aren't just for books. They're often spaces that transform into what you need them to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It's actually kind of magical. This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required.

I am studying to be a librarian, and I truly believe that libraries should never be on the budget cutting board. A librarian out there is making magic.

This was my all time favorite episode of This American Life. I have been a listener for nearly 20 years and this one was absolutely fantastic. I happen to love Zoe Chaice's voice besides that, she is a remarkable reporter and story teller. Well done!
