    •  I had to look it up to see who it was from. (0+ / 0-)

      It's on a poster on the door of the library where I work but I hadn't really paid attention.
          Ad you should see it happen- if something occurs in town like a layoff or a power failure, we are the first to know because we can provide everything from a computer to a bathroom. Everyone shows up to see what happened and use the facilities.
          I still like books though....

        "Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries."
        --Anne Herbert (1950- ), U.S. writer, quoted in The Next Whole Earth Catalog: Access to Tools, ed. Stewart Brand (1980), p. 331.

        Apparently the quote was a play on the motto of Gilbert Shelton's Freewheelin' Frank, one of his Freak Brothers,
        "Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope."

        She's best known for the quote "Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty."
