Louisana Saves the Library
Book #140 Read in 2015
Louisiana Saves the Library by Emily Beck Cogburn
This was a great southern fiction read; it reminded me of Ashton Lee's series set in a library down south. In the Louisiana book, after losing her job as a Library Science Professor at a college, Louisiana is hired at the Alligator Bayou public library. The public library is sorely lacking in programming and resources and Louisiana wants to modernize it and make the library the hub of the small town. The director is resistant to that idea and a local politician wants to close the library. As if those career issues were not enough, Louisiana's ex-husband is moving to a nearby town and getting remarried. This book was a great read for those for whom a library is near and dear to their heart. There were great Southern characters in it, nice literary references and a good balance of romance and humor. I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
