Gifts for Librarians and Library Loyalists

This holiday season, stock them up with books they can keep for their very own.

Librarians know there’s no better escape than getting lost in a great story, and these titles deliver. From a memoir by the owner of Scotland’s largest secondhand bookstore to a fantasy novel about a London library that saw a dragon slaying, these tales are the stuff of literary dreams. Throw in the intellectual side—a collection of Proust’s essays, a grammar guide—and you’ve got the ideal gifts for librarians and library lovers. These books will tickle their fancies and enhance their love for local libraries (as if they were ever short on it).
