“The library…

is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where
literary incense must be burned or where one’s devotion to the bound
book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor
of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas – a place
where history comes to life.”
-Norman Cousins
