|Old books from an antique book store in Maine, by Carla.|
"But there is no end to the praise of books, to the value of the library. Who shall estimate their influence on our population where all the millions read and write ? It is the joy of nations that man can communicate all his thoughts, discoveries and virtues to records that may last for centuries."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson in “Address at the Opening of Concord Free Public Library”
