I just found out that February is National Library Lover’s Month.
I love the library! I spent every moment I could at the library as a child. I blame our proximity to the library for my career choice. We lived within walking distance of a library for several years.
In celebration of library lover’s month, today I’m featuring 20 quotes about libraries.
