Claudia Alta Johnson
“Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.”
Lady Bird Johnson

Isabel Allende
“The library is inhabited by spirits that come out of the pages at night.”
Isabel Allende

Doris Lessing
“A public library is the most democratic thing in the world. What can be found there has undone dictators and tyrants: demagogues can persecute writers and tell them what to write as much as they like, but they cannot vanish what has been written in the past, though they try often enough...People who love literature have at least part of their minds immune from indoctrination. If you read, you can learn to think for yourself.”
Doris Lessing

Barbara Kingsolver
“I attempted briefly to consecrate myself in the public library, believing every crack in my soul could be chinked with a book.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
