Meet Library Lil. Lil had read every children's book in the library by the time she was eight. She has always loved libraries so it doesn't surprise anyone when she grows up to be a librarian. Unfortunately, no one in town is very interested in reading. They're all too busy watching television. When a storm knocks out all the electricity in town, Lil takes the opportunity to get people reading. And who's going to argue with a woman who can toss a motorcycle over her head as if it were an apple core?
