Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I could not write my books without the library’s help.  Even with the ease of Internet research, I find books to be indispensable when I am writing.  …  Books make me laugh, cry, and think.  They give me insight into history, and into the lives of people in other cultures.  They help me make important decisions, and they provide endless entertainment.  Hooray for libraries!
