Overview

When Lydia was five years old, she and her family had to leave their home. They hopped from Grandma's house to Aunt Linda's house to Cousin Alice's house, but no place was permanent. Then one day, everything changed. Lydia's mom took her to a new place — not a house, but a big building with stone columns, and tall, tall steps. The library.

In the library, Lydia found her special spot across from the sunny window, at a round desk. For behind that desk was her new friend, the librarian. Together, Lydia and the librarian discovered a world beyond their walls, one that sparkled with spectacular joy.

Paired with warm art by newcomer Romina Galotta and a foreword by Ira Glass, Dear Librarian is a "thank you" to anyone who has offered a child love and support during a difficult time.

About the Author

Lydia M. Sigwarth is an author and a children's librarian. Being a librarian has been her dream job since she was a small child—well, either that or being a time-traveling girl detective/ballerina (sadly the latter didn't end up being a viable option due to technological limitations). In her spare time, she reads, plays ukulele, and watches posh British shows with pretty costumes. She currently lives with her family in Platteville, Wisconsin.
