Guantanamo Bay Library?

Katie, Arvada Library

Have you ever thought about what the library at Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay might look like?  I hadn’t until I came across an article in The New York Times Book Review highlighting the collection.  A Tumblr site dedicated to the library and its holdings gives an insider’s view of this 18,000-item collection available to detainees.  Predictable favorites include Arabic-language fiction and books on religion.  Less predictably there are copies of Danielle Steel, Captain America and Harry Potter that have also seen good use.
