When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully—the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer.
When I enter a library, I feel I’ve come home.
Come, and take choice of all my library, and so beguile thy sorrow.
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.
Library/ Here is where people/ One frequently finds/ Lower their voices/ And raise their mind.
