Hatsley, Nivessa Rovedo. The Lively Life of Camilla Delibris, the Librarian (New York: iUniverse, c2005) 81 p.
Camilla has a new MLS and gets hired at the New Pastures Public Library in upstate New York. The library is a handsome marble affair founded in 1905 by the Van Velt family and presided over by the aged Katherine Van Velt. Two poor cousins of the Van Velt family work as librarians, Mary Patterson and Susan Westerly. Camilla is enthusiastic and well liked but she must decide if she wants to stay or go back to Brooklyn to marry her boyfriend. The novel is vigorously and entertainingly written but suffers from a lack of editing and proofreading.
