Elizabeth Brown loves to read more than anything else, but when her collection of books grows and grows, she must make a change in her life.

McMillan Palgrave

Meet an unforgettable bibliophile

Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls and she doesnt like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. Lots of books. The only problem is that her library has gotten so big she can't even use her front door anymore. What should Elizabeth Brown do? Start her own public library, of course! With charming verse and watercolors Sarah Stewart and David Small celebrate one of America's oldest and finest institutions.

The Library is a 1995 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year.

A girl with a passionate and unsatiable love for books grows up and so does her collection of books. What will she do with so many books!
