In the year 2098, the world is secure and Earth’s 2.9 billion people are healthy and happy. After overcoming a series of calamities in the first half of the century, human advancements birthed a utopian sociey. So when the government announces it will shut down the last library and destroy the books, it hardly seems important. But in addition to the dusty volumes, the library holds many secrets. Unless an unlikely trio can save the books, humanity will lose more than just what is printed on those antique pages.

Free healthcare for all, and guaranteed employment, make the future a dream. But this future may only be safe if the AOI can hide the past.

    With all the stories out there that are about the end of the world as we know it, I found this to be a fresh and interesting outlook. I can't wait to read the second in the series, which I am off to do right now! Great characters and rich plot.

    Librarian is an intelligently written book with intriguing character development. The future of the human species is in the hands of a few idealists.

    Not usually a sciFi reader I was completely taken by this book! A true nail biting page turner, I even recommended our library purchase this. The characters were easily connected, easy to follow and I finished this book wanting More! Now on to "The Lost TreeRunner" book 2of this trilogy!

    Ray Bradbury's book was classic way ahead of its time. This book may not have been intended to be the sequel, but I am of the opinion that it is. At times the book was so intense, I had to put it down briefly, however I always continued at the first opportunity. Very interesting look into a possible future!
