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.
A library is the home for the imagination.
Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.
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.
Libraries are more important today than when I was a kid.
