Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

One of my fondest memories as a child was going to our town library.  …  My sisters and I would lug home as many books as we could carry.  … What beauty on those pages – wondrous illustrations, astonishing journeys, laugh-out-loud antics.  Stories are food for the soul, and my mother fed us well on library books.
