Louis needs to write an essay for school about young Abraham Lincoln. But it's 1951 in Alabama and African Americans cannot use the public library. Mama says one day soon they'll be able to check out books, but Louis isn't going to wait! When he makes a brave journey into the "whites-only" library, something surprising and wonderful happens—he meets a brave young librarian.
