  • Libraries: cafeterias for food that feeds the mind.

  • 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’ve had a lifelong love affair with libraries, and will forever be grateful, as a fan of literature and a professional writer, for the wide-reaching impact of hardworking, passionate librarians.

    Holly Schindler, author

  • The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history.

    Carl T. Rowan, journalist & author

  • All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library.
