Librarian on the Roof! (A True Story)
Based on the true story of RoseAleta Laurell, a librarian who marched to the beat of her own drum. When she arrived as the head of Dr. Eugene Clark Library in Lockhart, Texas, she was disappointed to find the place was outdated and in desperate need of a children's section. To raise money, RoseAleta protests by staying on the library roof for a week!
