Library Dust by Michael McGrorty

Library Dust is a blog from Michael McGrorty, a new librarian, who has also been a U.S. Navy enlistee, a labor investigator, a private investigator, a probation officer, a novelist, and a poet. Writing is obviously very important to him. Many of his entries on Library Dust are fully developed essays that could easily fit in a magazine or newspaper. His December 28 entry about the fate of the library in Salinas, California is eloquent. He write to us as if we are friends. I enjoyed reading about his pickup truck in his review of the book High and Mighty by Keith Bradsher. You do not have to be a librarian to understand Library Dust. We should all take writing lessons from Michael McGrorty.
