Runtime:91-120 minutes
Synopsis:Susan, the young new librarian at Ridgeview Library, eagerly helps people find answers to questions, but she refuses to confront problems (such as smelly men or noisy teenagers). As more people arrive, the library grows raucous. The other librarian gets an emergency call from home. He tells Susan her top priority is to restore the quiet. When Bill returns, he finds a scene of total uproar, and he fires Susan on the spot. As she is packing her things, a surprise attack threatens the library and everyone in it, and Susan is finally provoked to confrontation - to protect the library she loves.
