Library love

The following quote is posted up in my library’s break room. I thought it was very encouraging for those of us who utilize the library on a regular basis for primarily frugal reasons:

“A library is not, as some would have it, a place for the retiring of disposition or the faint of heart. It is not an ivory tower or quiet room in a sanitarium facing away from the afternoon sun. It is, rather, a command center, a power base. A board room; a war room. An oval office for all who preside over their own destinies. One does not retreat from the world here; one prepares to join in at an advantage.”

-Eric Burns, from his book The Joy of Books: Confessions of a Lifelong Reader
