"Libraries are a vital resource to our community. Of course I stand with them. As for librarians; they are the straw that stirs the shake."

"Ms. Berkin, my grade school librarian, truly saved my life. She took a rambunctious, distracted but intelligent kid who played a prank on the library, and rather than hold it against me, placed me into the inaugural gifted program that she created and ran. I have always counted my librarians as not just mentors, but friends. They don't just take care of books...they take care of me."
