Book Review: The Library Card

Posted on Updated on

The Library Card

Written by Jerry Spinelli

Ages: 9+, 148 pages

The Library Card describes various ways that a library card enhances someone’s life. The book contains four ‘mini’ stories about teens experiences that guide them to obtain a library card. Each mini story is divided into chapters. Mongoose turns from shoplifting to curiosity about information for a particular insect. Brenda discovers the library during a TV turn off week and realizes that she doesn’t truly know herself. Sonseray finds comfort at the library where he’s missing elsewhere in life. April rides a bookmobile and meets a unique individual. Overall, I thought the book was good that highlights four very different teens who benefited from the library.
