What’s good about libraries? R

Library A to Z: RI’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 R?

Reading; recommendations; reference books; references; relaxing; reminiscence; research; resources; retirement; rhyme time.

Some great R quotes:

Keith Richards: When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equaliser.

Jim Rohn (management speaker and author): Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.

Roger Rosenblatt: If a man spends enough time in a library, he may actually change his mind. I have seen it happen.

Carl Rowan (journalist and diplomat): The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history.

Daniel M Russell: One of the more powerful research tools you can have is a library card. (From his blogpost 5 reasons why you should have a library card.)

Do you have any other suggestions for R?

  1. I love the Keith Richards quote. Another R quote – Henry Rollins: “no one goes into any library seeking to lose knowledge or leave knowing less than they did before they went in. “


I'd love to hear what you think!
