NLW15: Another Romance in the Stacks

The Library Tree
Peake
1972

As we close out National Library Week, we have yet another romance in the stacks. Our librarian wanna-be is Carolyn, who got the job at the library thanks to her powerful and connected uncle. Naturally, the handsome director is a complete jerk and a political “enemy” of Carolyn’s uncle and doesn’t want her on the staff. Uncle and his cohorts on the board override his concerns and she is hired. Aside from the jerk boss, Carolyn likes the job.

The boss is still not happy and is undermining Carolyn or yelling at her for one thing or another. Carolyn, however, finally gets to a point that she is going to resign.  WHEN SUDDENLY, the long lost dad who abandoned her years ago contacts her and wants to reconcile. Of course he is dying. Literally. Jerk director man drives her to the hospital and tells the father he is Carolyn’s fiance. Jerk director guy wants her dying father to know she will be “taken care of.” THE BIG REVEAL: He really loves her and wants her to go to library school. Cue the music.

I know all of you are wiping your tears and are so happy for Carolyn now that she has everything: a library career AND a man!

Happy National Library Week everyone! I hope all of you got lots of praise and cash this week.

Mary
