The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

What the great and the good say about our beloved in­sti­tu­tions

“A li­brary in the mid­dle of a com­mu­nity is a cross be­tween an emer­gency exit, a life-raft and a festival... they are the only shel­tered pub­lic spa­ces where you are not a con­sumer, but a ci­ti­zen.” Caitlin Mo­ran

“What­ever the cost of our li­braries, the price is cheap com­pared to that of an ig­no­rant na­tion.” Wal­ter Cronkite

“Li­braries will get you through times of no money bet­ter than money will get you through times of no li­braries.” Anne Her­bert
