"A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people---people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book,"
- E.B. White, writing to the children of Troy, Michigan,congratulating them on their new library in 1971.(Which may be closing soon, due to lack of funds)
