Quotes About Libraries

I saw this touching video about libraries recently and thought I would share it with other public library fans.  From Cicero to Maya Angelou to Keith Richards, lots of people have had interesting and important things to say about the value of libraries.  This video, created for the American Library association during National Library Week, collects a number of those quotes.  Although they left out one of my favourites, “You see, I don’t believe that libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence, and that’s been the main reason for our policy of employing wild animals as librarians.  ~ Monty Python skit.  I wonder why? 😉
