More of Marian's books…
Ray Bradbury
“I don't believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don't have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn't go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.”
Ray Bradbury

Alan Bradley
“As I stood outside in Cow Lane, it occurred to me that Heaven must be a place where the library is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

No ... eight days a week.”
Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

J.K. Rowling
“Harry — I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!”
And she sprinted away, up the stairs.
What does she understand?” said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.
“Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head.
“But why’s she got to go to the library?”
“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

T.S. Eliot
“The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man”
T.S. Eliot

Geraldine Brooks
“To know a man's library is, in some measure, to know a man's mind.”
Geraldine Brooks, March
