Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Libraries really are wonderful. They’re better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books quietly out of the goodness of their hearts.

-Jo Walton, Among Others, pg 59


Interlibrary loans are a wonder of the world and a glory of civilization.


Carl V. said...

Isn't Among Others wonderful?

And given the situation with the libraries in England now, and frankly in America, these quotes couldn't be more timely.
