Librarian on the Roof by M.G. King

Librarian on the Roof is the true story of how RoseAleta Laurell upgraded the oldest library in Texas.  To encourage more children to visit the library, RoseAleta campaigned for the addition of a section just for children.  To raise the needed funds she camped out on the roof of the library until almost twice the money needed was raised.  Vibrantly colored illustrations highlight RoseAleta’s week long adventure.  Librarians and library fans alike will enjoy this delightful picture book.  It would make a great gift for your favorite librarian.  Recommended for Kindergarten through third grade.

  1. That could be displayed right beside The Librarian of Basra during Natl. Library Week. They're not Marian the Librarian, are they? I'll have to find this one; I hadn't heard of it before you mentioned it.

  2. I might not have run across it, if I didn't periodically check to see what Pike's Peak Library District has on order. I usually request to see anything that has library/librarian in the title. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I'm going to have to get a copy for my personal library.
