Author Claire L. Evans is a big fan of Los Angeles Public Library and she used the library extensively to research her new book Broad Band. We met up with Evans at her local branch, Arroyo Seco Regional Library, to talk about her research and writing process, and how libraries help fill in the gaps in our recent digital history. As Evans says, there's "nothing like writing a book about the Internet to make you realize how little material is actually online."

Be sure to also check out our previous conversation with Evans.
