The librarian

Morgan, Allie2021
The day I had my interview for my library position was the day I decided that I shouldn't die. Allie Morgan is a woman in crisis. Having recently dropped out of her dream career due to mental illness, she's decided that life is no longer worth living and is set to end it when she receives a phone call from the local library, offering her a job. There and then she decides to postpone suicide and give the role a try. What Allie doesn't expect is for a simple part-time job to become a passionate battle for survival, both her own and for the library. As the year unfolds, she sees an attempted murder, becomes a target for a drugs gang and finds herself the last hope for people in desperate poverty. Hers is the story of how one person can go from rock bottom to becoming a crucial part of her local community. Recounted with immense wry humour and disarming charm, The Librarian is an eye-opening account of a strange but wonderful community hub and a library that changed a life.
