A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.
A library is not simply a repository of books, it is the symbol and center of our culture—a door and a window for those who might not otherwise have such doors and windows.
Libraries are absolutely at the center of my life. Since I couldn’t afford to go to college, I attended the library three or four days a week from the age of eighteen on, and graduated from the library when I was twenty-eight.
Funding libraries should be our number one national priority.
The contents of a library can take you further than your own imagination could begin to imagine. To open a book is to open your mind.
