The world’s most improbable libraries

Author Alex Johnson was recently interviewed on Late Night Live (Radio National) on the topic of his book Improbable Libraries: A Visual Journey to the World's Most Unusual Libraries.

Some of the intriguing and amazing libraries that he discusses include subway and taxi-based libraries in South America, animal-driven mobile libraries (camels and donkeys!), tiny lending libraries, and grassroots libraries like that of Occupy Wall Street.

You can read a summary or download the interview from the RN website.
