Whether you visit the library weekly, with toddlers in tow for story time, or you haven’t set foot in a library in who knows how long, Susan Orlean’s The Library Book will captivate and enthrall you. Set against the backdrop of the devastating Los Angeles Central Library fire in 1986, Orlean’s non-fiction narrative explores all kinds of things from the essential role of libraries in today’s world to the cultural history of Los Angeles.  Summit County Library’s Youth Services Librarian, Kirsten Nilsson has this month’s book review.

On today's program, host Leslie Thatcher discussed the proposed $56 million education bond with School Board members Nancy Garrison and Julie  Eihausen. Snyderville Planning Commissioner Chuck Klingenstein reviews the items of discussion at last night's meeting including the EPA update and positive recommendation for the new location of Whole Foods. Sara Hutchinson with Park City Education Foundation and Summit County Librarian Kirsten Nilsson preview the community discussions on this year's One Book - Boys in the Boat.

A popular topic in February, with Valentine's Day, is love. But February is also Love Your Library month, and the Park City Library, and the county's Kimball Junction branch, will be participating in activities on Feb. 12th. Rick Brough has more.
