Quote of the Day
I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it's better than college. People should educate themselves - you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I'd written a thousand stories.
A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.

It is an awfully sad misconception that librarians simply check books in and out. The library is the heart of a school, and without a librarian, it is but an empty shell.
Jarrett J. Krosoczka
Information helps you to see that you're not alone. That there's somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who've all longed and lost, who've all been happy.

Lady Bird Johnson
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.
Henri Frederic Amiel

If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?
Basically I was a rebel growing up. I got kicked out of six schools. But I don't think that it makes you less of an intellect. You know, if you ever crave knowledge, there's always a library.

It was a public library.
As a kid, I would get my parents to drop me off at my local library on their way to work during the summer holidays, and I would walk home at night.
