Vackra ord om bibliotek

En vackrare och sannare bild av bibliotek, blir nog svårt att hitta. Så här skriver Caitlin Moran om varför det är viktigt med bibliotek;

"A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead. A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted, rather than a customer with a credit card and an inchoate "need" for "stuff."
