The Last Library
by Freya Sampson
Books > Paperback Fiction
You can tell a lot about a person from the library books they borrow. Lonely library assistant June is much more comfortable with books than people. When her mum – the beloved local librarian – passed away, June stepped into her shoes. But shy June has always felt that she could never live up to her mum’s legacy.
Instead, she’s retreated into herself, surviving on takeaways-for-one and her favourite stories. When the library is threatened with closure, June is distraught. Yet when a ragtag band of eccentric but dedicated locals establish the Friends of Chalcot Library campaign, June is forbidden from joining their cause.
If June wants to save the place that means so much to her, she’ll have to make some bold changes to her life: opening up her heart to friendship, opportunities and maybe even more . . .
