Hey there– Just now got a notice popped up in my email from my friendly downtown library. The book I’ve been waiting for (The Girl on the Train) has come in!! I just love that place, tacking down books for me, then letting me know it’s in, all for free!
I’m a life-long library fan. And I ran across a few library-ish quotes that I think you might like as much as I have.
“A library is the only single place you can go to learn something new, comforted, terrified, thrilled, saddened, overjoyed, or excited, all in one day. And for free.” –Amy Neftzger
“A library is a place vibrating with ideas.” –Nancy Kundhadt Lodge
“Libraries are really wonderful. They’re better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books out of the goodness of their hearts.” –Jo Walton
“Without the library, you have no civilization.” –Ray Bradbury
“If I could live in the library, I would.” — Pembroke Sinclair
“Who doesn’t love a library? It is a place you can to in any town and discover the world.”
“When I enter the library, I feel I’ve come home.” –Barbara Wright
