I’m following the A to Z Challenge by posting every day in April (except Sundays) about the importance of libraries. I’m using the Library A to Z advocacy materials and a small selection of quotations in each post.
What good things about libraries begin with D?
Dads; dance; databases; democracy; Dewey; digital literacy; discovery; diversity; download (things that the library buys); dry; DVDs; dyslexia / disability support.
Quotes about libraries from people with names beginning with D are thinner on the ground – but there are plenty about books and reading, starting with the great Roald Dahl.
Roald Dahl: If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.
George Mercer Dawson: A great library contains the diary of the human race.
Annie Dillard: She reads books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.
Frederick Douglas: Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.
Do you have any other suggestions for D?
