Join our inspirational book discussion. Pick up a copy of the book at the Highland Branch Library! 

Enjoy a discussion of the inspirational title, Daring Escape by Tricia Goyer. At the height of World War II, American Amity Mitchell is living a comfortable life abroad as a tutor in England. An urgent telegram arrives from her brother, Andrew, summoning her to Prague, where his efforts to help Jewish children escape Czechoslovakia have grown desperate as Nazi forces tighten their grip on the country. Amity knows she can't ignore God's call to join Andrew in coming to the children's aid. Amity's boss, Clark, follows her to Prague to urge her to return but soon finds himself helping the Mitchell siblings prepare Kindertransports bound for the safety of England while threats of German occupation escalate.

About the branch

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a study room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
