Libyrinth by Pearl North

Brought to you by the woman who helped me work through my novel, this is a tale that happens so far in the future, you'll barely recognize the world. What you will recognize are the passages from old books like Charlotte's Web and The Diary of Anne Frank. A young girl named Haly lives in a massive library known as the Libyrinth must take on a journey to save those she loves. Of course, it doesn't start out that way. It begins with a quest to hide The Book of the Night from the book-burning Eradicants and turns into a journey of song, technology, understanding, friendship, imps, war, miracles, and the wonder of the written word.

Once the action starts, it hardly ever stops (and it doesn't take long to start either!).
