"Libraries are a bastion of freedom in a democratic society. I can't imagine living without them. Libraries and librarians have supported my writing in countless ways from helping me find resources, hosting book launches, offering free events across a wide range of topics, and giving me a quiet place to curl up and write."

"Libraries are the foundation of a democratic society, a home away from home, and the key to a wider world."
