A Library is a Good Place

February 4, 2012

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
-E.B. White

    I love libraries too – the only problem I have with them is that time tends to disappear much faster there. But what wonderful places they are – to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends, waiting patiently to be released from between the pages by our imagination . . .

    I totally agree! And most librarians are quite wonderful too – they’re usually the first people I meet in a new community because that’s where I go..as the quote said. :)

    “books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.”

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
