KIRKUS REVIEW

With the sympathy, honesty and credibility of Miss Munday, Miss Engstrand presents another facet of community service, that of a librarian in a small Illinois factory town. When Wilma Rogers comes to Milo she finds an apathetic community, a library board motivated by self interest, a dreary little library with an annual book budget of $50.00. Her struggle for a new library runs amuck through emotional entanglements, but eventually she wins her fight and, following her marriage, leaves the library in trained hands. Human, real portrait of a girl and a town.
