One of my favourite fictional libraries is in the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. Will keep looking for a good photo of the librarian AKA The Cheshire Cat!
Shades Of Grey is Fforde's latest series starter, as he creates yet another imaginative world, this one a post-apocalyptical world where people see only in single colors and caste systems are built around which colors they see. Dark satire here, but worlds of fun.
