Midnight Library - by Kazuno Kohara (In Honor of National Library Worker's Day)
Number One on this list ofTwelve Children's Picture Books with Non-Princess Female Protagonistsis this empowering, and sweet, tale about a little librarian who runs a nighttime library for animals with the help of three owl assistants. She clearly has book knowledge as she helps Miss Wolf find a book that is not too sad, and also provides community space for a band of squirrels to practice their music, and finally assists a tortoise with getting his first library card and checking out a book. I was glad to find it on the shelf of the library in which I work. Definitely a "feel good" book for librarians of all ages.
