Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

So three cheers for you and your library.  And for books and reading, too.  I don’t know about you, but I love books that can make me laugh and cry.  I love books that make me think and feel.  I love the simple act of reading a book.  It’s so private and solitary.  But if it’s a good book, it makes me feel less alone in the world.  And golly, that’s an awfully nice way to feel, isn’t it  All my best regards to you in LaSalle..
