Synopsis

By the time she was eight, Lil had read every children's book in the library and was working her way through the encyclopedias. So it's no surprise when she grows up to become a librarian. When a storm knocks out the town's electricity one night, Lil knows that's her one chance to turn the townspeople into readers again. Full color.
