The Lady of the Library

We rated this book:


How do you save a library from demolition? More challenging still, how do you save it when you are the ghost of a former librarian who continues to haunt its halls? You start by teaming up with a very determined young girl, of course.

Angie Karcher has written an entertaining story that follows the various obstacles the ghost and the girl must overcome to save their beloved library. Karcher’s evident skill with rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration makes this story a delight to read aloud and also pairs well with Rachel Sanson’s illustrations of the Victorian lady librarian and her library.

Inspired by the haunted Willard Library in Evansville, Indiana, this book not only contains additional information about the role of community libraries today, but also about other haunted libraries. For those seeking to inspire an interest in libraries, learning, and books, The Lady of the Library makes a good choice. Just don’t be surprised when your listeners peek around corners and glance at the rafters on their next trip to the library.
