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.
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.
The public library is one of the great strongholds of democracy. Who doesn’t love a library? It is a place you can go in any town and discover the world.
Throughout my formal education I spent many, many hours in public and school libraries. Libraries became courts of last resort, as it were. The current definitive answer to almost any question can be found within the four walls of most libraries.
All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library.
