Photos: 7 Tampa Bay Librarians Share Where They Go with a Good Book

A book for many is an escape. You travel to different times and places. You meet people who shaped history or just fell into a tragic romance.

Whether it be self-help, science fiction or biography, a good book is always a comfort. But physical comfort is also essential in the place where you choose to escape--maybe a local park or even a corner of the library.  

When you want to let your mind wander into the pages of a book where do you go? 

This week, Florida Matters previews the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading. We spoke to the authors and speakers, but we also wanted input from some other important people in literature: librarians. 

They study, recommend and tend to everything from classic novels to modern beach reads.  And even though their days are filled with books, they still have their special places where they go to escape into the words of their favorite writers.  Through these photos, they invite us into their favorite places to curl up with a good book.
