“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination." Caitlin Moran from THE LIBRARY BOOK – a collection of essays about people and their passion for public libraries (edited by Seth Godin).
