On National Libraries Day

“I had no books at home. I started to frequent a public library in Lisbon. It was there, with no help except curiosity and the will to learn, that my taste for reading developed and was refined”.

Jose Saramago

“Libraries aren’t in the real world, after all. They’re places apart, sanctuaries of pure thought. In this way I can go on living on the moon for the rest of my life”.

Paul Auster

“The library was my salvation. Through the library I got to see the world, to read books from every century. It was my temple.”

Patti Smith

I am what libraries and librarians have made me, with little assistance from a professor of Greek and poets.
