“I have always thought that librarians are a little bit like doctors, travel agents and professors all rolled into one. We all know that a great story can lift spirits, take you anywhere in the world you want to go and in any time period to boot, and the lessons you learn from a good book can buoy your own convictions and even change your life. ”
Dorothea Benton Frank

“Books were my passion and my escape from madness.”
Dorothea Benton Frank, The Christmas Pearl

“Isn’t it amazing how much good people can do for each other when you give them the opportunity to help?”
