Here Lies the Librarian

Peewee idolizes Jake, a big brother whose dreams of auto mechanic glory are fueled by the hard road coming to link their Indiana town and futures with the twentieth century. And motoring down the road comes Irene Ridpath, a young librarian with plans to astonish them all and turn Peewee ’ s life upside down.This novel, with its quirky characters, folksy setting, classic cars, and hilariously larger-than-life moments, is vintage Richard Peck – an offbeat, deliciously wicked comedy that is also unexpectedly moving.

Also, there was certainly no such thing as a doctorat in library science until 1930 when the first such degree was awarded ( Univ.

As for any librarian training at Butler College, there seems to have been only the Indiana Summer School for Librarians ( between 1905 and 1920, at least).

However, this program was not affiliated with the summer school at Butler College until 1915 ( previously it was located at Winona Lake, Indiana).
