our-libraryWhen Miss Goose, the librarian, tells Raccoon and his friends that library will soon close forever, the kids know they have to do something to prevent that from happening. Checking out books along the way, they learn how to fix the roof, paint the walls and door, and raise money through things like bake sales. But Beaver, who owns the land the library sits on, still wants to sell the land. But Raccoon and his friends have a plan, and they know they just need to find the right book to help. Gopher sums up the moral of the story when he says, “There’s nothing you can’t learn to do when you have books.” Bunting shows the importance of saving libraries from closing, and that kids can make a difference in their world if they are determined and know where to look for help (books, of course!).
