A library is…

June 30, 2013

shelves“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.

On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead.  A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted, rather than a customer with a credit card.”

– Caitlin Moran, “Moranthology”

What does a library mean to you I wonder?
