  • Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.

  • Libraries: cafeterias for food that feeds the mind.

    Louise Yelin, author

  • 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.

    Ray Bradbury, author

  • Libraries are a pillar of liberty; they equalize and transform.

    Matthew Vossler
