Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Many, many congratulations to you, the library staff, and all of the people of the LaSalle community.  You all understand that a library is the heart and soul of any small town.  For me, the library is home, and the books are my brothers and sisters.  I read to learn, to laugh and cry, to find myself, and to understand other.  Books help me breathe and words flow in my veins.
