A former educator of children with special and unique needs, author Naomi Law retired as an administrator and now volunteers in her community. She has served as a trustee and secretary of the Oak Park Public Library board and president emeritus of the Galesburg Public Library Foundation board. She is especially fond of the Oak Park Public Library and the brand-new Galesburg Public Library. Naomi is also the author of “The Adventures of Orie the Orpheum Mouse,” which has been submitted for a PenCraft Award.
Naomi writes, “‘Jump, Drew, Jump!’ takes place on the evening of May 9, 1958. That was when the beautiful and magnificent Carnegie Library burned. The Carnegie was one of the libraries made possible by a donation from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. This library was built in the midwestern town of Galesburg, Illinois. It was a favorite place for people, mice, and one very popular cat. Unfortunately, the building caught on fire. Everyone escaped the roaring fire with the exception of one tiny mouse. This is the story of his daring escape from the burning building. It is also a reminder of the value of libraries and their impact on a community. Photos from the Galesburg Public Library Archives contribute to making this book a keepsake for historians, children, and adults who love to share memories. ‘Jump, Drew, Jump!’ is in recognition of the 2024 opening of the newly built Galesburg Public Library.”
