Kurt Vonnegut

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.

Sidney Sheldon

Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.

Ray Bradbury

Libraries are absolutely at the center of my life. Since I couldn't afford to go to college, I attended the library three or four days a week from the age of eighteen on, and graduated from the library when I was twenty-eight.

Ann Patchett

A library is... liberty.

Amy Tan

A library is not simply a repository of books, it is the symbol and center of our culture - a door and a window for those who might not otherwise have such doors and windows.

Bill Peschel

Libraries are society's workhorses, making available what is good and worthy and open to all who need information, reassurance or a kick in the imagination. A town without a library is irredeemably impoverished.

Studs Terkel

All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library.

Kurt Vonnegut

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.

Ricky Gervais

Why buy a book when you can join a library?

Steve Leveen

A library is a fuelling station for the mind.
