The Bad-ass Librarians of Timbuktu
The Bad-ass Librarians of Timbuktu And Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts By Hammer, Joshua Book - 2016

A very readable story about the creation of a major collection of documents within a center of ancient Islamic learning, and more recent existential threats to the existence of the works, and the heroic efforts by librarians to save the manuscript collection.
