Library Highlights:

  • The library card is a passport to wonders and miracles, glimpses into other lives, religions, experiences, the hopes and dreams and strivings of all human beings, and it is this passport that opens our eyes and hearts to the world beyond our front doors, that is one of our best hopes against tyranny, zenophobia, hopelessness, despair, anarchy, and ignorance.” (Libba Bray) Want to know more about the author of this quote?
