there are few places I love more…

…than a public library:

A library is many things. It’s a place to go, to get in out of the rain. It’s a place to go if you want to sit and think. But particularly it is a place where books live, and where you can get in touch with other people, and other thoughts, through books.

That is from a letter written by E.B. White to the children in Troy, Michigan, when the public library there opened in 1971. Today, Letters of Note features a few letters written by famous writers to the children in Troy.

If you love your public library, why not make a local donation? (If you don’t know your local library, look it up.) If you want to promote village libraries in Africa, please make a donation to Friends of African Village Libraries (FAVL).
