  • There is no problem a library card can’t solve.

    Eleanor Brown, author

  • I love libraries! They opened the world to me as a child and continue to do so now. Librarians are fantastic, hardworking people who go out of their way.

    June Shaw, Author

  • Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.

    Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady of the United States

  • A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.

    Andrew Carnegie, industrialist & philanthropist

  • I cannot think of a day in my life when the library didn’t exert a potent attraction for me, offering a sense of the specialness of each individual’s curiosity and his or her quest to satisfy it.

    Scott Turow, lawyer & author
