Book Review: This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson

This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson I was browsing the “Staff Picks” section at a local library when I came across This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson. I like libraries, have considered becoming a librarian, and know some librarians, so this sounded just right for me.

The book is a really light read, which was nice, since I usually don’t like reading nonfiction that’s rather heavy. It presented different aspects of being a librarian and running a library, including some different takes on libraries, both good and bad. My only complaint was that it had way too much about librarians who use Second Life, which I found really boring. The rest of the book was enjoyable though, and has made me think again about pursuing a library science degree.
