The Giver is a story held in the future where things have changed drastically. At certain ages, you get new things. You have no power over what you do, for your spouse, house, and more. At 12 you get a desired job. In the story, there are no emotions such as love and no memories either. Jonas, the main character, attends the ceremony to get his job. But instead he gets the role of the receiver.
All Johnson County Library locations will be closed Sunday, July 3 and Monday, July 4 for Independence Day.
