Top ten "library" books

Adam Lancaster is the UK's SLA School Librarian of the Year 2012.

At the Guardian he named a top ten list of "books that are set in libraries or have set his library alight," including:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

One book that is a must in any library. The style and the humour of the books is the key to turning some non-readers into avid readers. I also love using these books to show those very same people that were originally turned off to reading that Greg loves to write and draw. That's why he keeps journal, and that's why they are able to read about what he gets up to.
