After losing her teaching job at Louisiana A&M, Louisiana "Louise" Richardson takes a librarian job at Alligator Bayou Parish Library. She finds a library that hasn't really changed since 1960 and is on the verge of being closed. Louise and her friend Sylvia who was also hired at the library start making changes that please some and upset others. Along the way, Louise also finds a new love and comes to terms with her ex-husband Brendan and his new wife. This charming novel has interesting characters and a plot that proves small town life can be anything but dull. There are enough loose ends that a sequel would be welcome.
