How Nancy Pearl Became America's Most Celebrated Librarian
by Karen Henry Clark; Illustrated by Sheryl Murray

Library Girl, a picture book biography, shares the inspiring childhood story of beloved Seattle icon, librarian, and author Nancy Pearl.

This is the true story of a young girl growing up in Detroit Michigan, whose voracious reading ignites her vivid imagination. Her classmates tease her, calling her “library girl,” but her love of books draws her to the school library Monday through Friday.  When she discovers a nearby neighborhood public library – the Francis Parkman branch – is open on Saturday, she experiences the adventure of her life.
 
This young girl, Nancy Pearl, grows up to become “America’s Librarian,” devoting her life to talking about books up and down library aisles, on radio and television, at conferences and colleges around the world. Ultimately, she authors books about books, believing that reading allows people to find dreams of their own.
