Back of Book: When RoseAleta Laurell begins her new job at the Dr. Eugene Clark Library in Lockhart, Texas, she is surprised that the children of the town think the library is for adults. She vows to raise the money for a children’s section and spends a week living and working on the library roof, even surviving a dangerous storm. With the help of the entire town, RoseAleta raises over $39,000 from within the community and across the country.

My Review:  This is an extremely fun look at how unique librarians can be. RoseAleta is not your normal librarian. She is willing to take risks and try new things in order to help her library grow. This book is based on a true story and is great to use for a unit on influential people or biographies. The illustrations in this story are fun and eye catching. I enjoyed reading this story very much and am looking forward to sharing it with my students.
