"Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open."
"At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better."
- Barak Obama

"Why did you do all this for me? he asked. I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you. You have been my friend, replied Charlotte. That in itself is a tremendous thing." -E.B. White - Charolotte's Web
Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
" You can't always judge people by the things they done." -Kate DiCamillo - Because of Winn Dixie
