Bücher haben wie die Menschen nur einen Weg, um in die Welt zu kommen, aber sie haben tausend, um sie zu verlassen und nie wiederzukehren. Jonathan Swift

“In hard times, libraries are more important than ever. Human beings need what books give them
better than any other medium. Since ancient nights around prehistoric campfires, we have needed
myth. And heroes. And moral tales. And information about the world beyond the nearest
mountains or oceans. Today, with books and movies more expensive than ever, and television entertainment in free fall to the lowest level of stupidity, free circulating books are an absolute necessity. They are quite simply another kind of food. For those without money, the road to the treasure house of the imagination begins at the public library.” Pete Hamill
“People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned.” Saul Bellow
“It isn’t just a library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you — and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.” Victor Hugo
