A fitting end to National Library Week
Having cut my professional teeth at Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star library while I was in college, for many years, I never missed National Library Week. This year being a bit different for me, it sort of snuck up me. To that end, please take a look at my past post, “11 Ways Authors Can Celebrate National Library Week.” Keep in mind that many of these can be applied at any time during the year – they are not limited to Library Week.
And now for the celebratory part of the post. Here is a brief collection of library quotes to conclude National Library Week 2016.
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” — Cicero
“If I was a book, I would like to be a library book, so I would be taken home by all different sorts of kids.” — Cornelia Funk
“Your library is your portrait.” — Holbrook Jackson
“Libraries raised me.” — Ray Bradbury
“I always tell people that I became a writer not because I went to school but because my mother took me to the library. I wanted to become a writer so I could see my name in the card catalog.” — Sandra Cisneros
