Stuff I Like

“…Clearly the chief ideal of everyone connected with the library movement is that it shall render its maximum service to humanity. We are all imbued with the desire to bring nearer the time when all the men and women who in any way benefit by library facilities are making use of them.”
L.R. McColvin, quoted in Public Library Extension Activities by Harold Jolliffe (2nd Ed. London: Library Association. 1968.)

“Boys who never before thought of doing such a thing may now be seen at intermission seated in some part of the grounds, reading books instead of playing or telling harmful stories or planning to escape”
F. G. Kraege, Principal Industrial School for Boys, Waukesha, Wis., The Use of Libraries in Reformatory Work, Conference on Charities and Corrections, 1896
