This picture book tells the story of one girl who reminds an entire town of the joy of books.
When the town's old library is destroyed by a tornado, the people are left wondering: What should they do with the space where the library used to be?
The characters in Nia and the New Free Library all want different things: the builder wants there to be a new skyscraper, the grocer wants a new parking lot, but Nia just wants a new library . . . but how can one person build a whole library?
• Explores the power of community and what a group can accomplish • Teaches the importance of working together toward a common goal • Reminds readers of the important role libraries play in community, and how they work
Sometimes the biggest things can start with almost nothing at all.
