1. The public library is a true American invention. Perhaps no other place captures the values of freedom of expression and democracy like this venerable institution. Libraries represent what we should never take for granted: the freedom to read, the freedom to choose and the freedom to share our ideas.

    — Luis Herrera, the city librarian of San Francisco, in the New York Times Op/Ed “More Relevant Than Ever” (via queenslibrary)
