A group of librarians at the Public Library of Charlotte and
Mecklenburg County in North Carolina who love to read and share
enjoyable books with others began this club in November 1998 with just
a few reviews and a lot of hope. Now many colleagues at all levels -
from library assistants to managers - write reviews of their favorite
books, and there are over 2000 reviews in the database. Most of the
reviews are written by staff, but they welcome reviews from everyone.
