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 L?
Languages; learning; leisure; lending / loans; librarians / library staff; literacy; literature; local studies; local to users.
Some L quotes:
Doris Lessing: With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one – but no one at all – can tell you what to read and when and how.
John Lubbock: We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth.
John Lydon: Libraries are the most important essential part of our culture and civilisation.
L is also for Love Letters to Libraries, a feature of last year’s Book Week Scotland, from Scottish Book Trust. The Guardian ran a similar series. Great reading! And, to finish off, try this short video on Libraries in the Internet Age.
Do you have any other suggestions for L?
