Cultural Offering had a nice little round-up on libraries today, but I especially liked the link to his own earlier post about his county's effort to pass a library levy last year, including his reflections on the role libraries have played in his life. The closing paragraph is a real gem:
"I forget who said: "If you were to know how a man treats his wife and children, see how he treats his books." But the same holds true for society. If we want to know how we treat each other, look at how we treat our libraries."
P.S. Kurt - if you see this I'd love to know if the Chamber of Commerce endorsed the levy, and if it passed!
