If we run out of copies, we are happy to put you on the waiting list.

Plot synopsis of The Giver of Stars:  “Based on a program that was instituted by Eleanor Roosevelt in the mid-1930s, The Giver of Stars is about a group of women that begin a traveling library that delivers books to the rural areas of the town on horseback. These so-called Pack Horse Librarians must overcome a number of obstacles on their way to bringing literacy to the masses, but they do so and tackle these challenges together. It’s a tale of love, friendship and of course books.” (taken from https://the-bibliofile.com/the-giver-of-stars/)

When you’re done reading, please return your copy to the Adult Reference Desk. The Giver of Stars is also available to download and/or request for your tablet, phone, etc. via Overdrive or with the Libby App and your SJCPLS library card! Please call the Library at (904) 827-6950 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you! Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
