Miss Dorothy and her Bookmobile is based on the true story of rural librarian Dorothy Thomas. The art in this book is just delightful. And I happen to love reading about the passion and persistence of a woman who's life long dream is to be a librarian. Oh how she succeeds! Even if it's not in the way she imagined.
Library Lil is the Paul Bunyan of librarians: pushing the bookmobile through and thunderstorm, turning the townspeople from couch potatoes to reading junkies, and taming a crew of bad bikers! It's awesome! Plus, art by Steven Kellogg is really the icing on the cake for me!
Aunt Lulu is pretty quirky, but I have to include it because Lilac loves it! Lulu is a librarian in Alaska who delivers books to miners using her sled and team of dogs (Melvin, Louise, Phoebe, Willie, Norman, Hortense, Bruce, Susie, Charles, Teddie, Neddie, Eddie, Freddie, and Sweetie-pie.) But she's hanging up her hat a moving to New Jersey-- don't worry the dogs and sled go with her.
There you have it! Three librarians that rock!
