In the A to Z Challenge the idea is to blog about a subject beginning with a different letter every day (except Sundays) in April. I tried it for the first time with my travel blog last year, and I’m doing it again this year (on the theme of Gallus Glasgow if you’re interested). Then I had a crazy thought – maybe I could follow it on this blog too? It would be a good way of using the Library A to Z materials, and I could add in some of the quotes about libraries that I’ve been jotting down for years.
I’ve hummed and hawed and eventually decided to do it. I’m well ahead with the travel posts, and I’ve prepared a few for this which will get me through the first week. I’ve made my mind up too late to join in with the official Theme Reveal last Monday, so this is my own, personal little reveal. From 1st April I will be blogging about the benefits of libraries from A to Z – please come and join me and add your own thoughts.
To start us off, here are three of the more famous quotes about libraries:
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. Jorge Luis Borges.
If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero.
I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book. Groucho Marx.
What do you think is good about libraries?
