“In my work a good library is essential…” Justice O’Connor

“In my work a good library is essential. It enables me to learn the background and previous discussions of the various issues I am called upon to decide. It provides the stability and continuity for the rule of law.”

Sandra Day O’Connor, First female member of the Supreme Court of the United States.

“With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one – but no one at all – can tell you what to read and when and how.”

Doris Lessing, novelist

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

Broadcaster Walter Cronkite

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

 Marcus Tullius Cicero
