Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Access to knowledge is the superb, the supreme act of truly great civilizations . Of all the institutions that purport to do this, free libraries stand virtually alone in accomplishing this …  Of the monuments humans build for themselves, very few say:  ‘Touch me; use me; my hush is not indifference; my space is not barrier’

Toni Morrison
