Rachel je nepremičninska agentka, ki jo njen šef pošlje v majhno kalifornijsko mesto, da bi odkupila zemljišče, na katerem se nahaja knjižnica, saj jo nameravajo porušiti in zgraditi počitniško naselje. Med obiskom knjižnice Rachel spozna simpatičnega pisatelja Jakea, s katerim se takoj ujameta. Ker knjižničarka Annie na vsak način želi rešiti knjižnico, prepriča Jakea, naj Rachel pokaže, kakšen pomen ima zgradba za njihovo mesto. Jo bodo uspeli še pravočasno rešiti?
