“Books can not be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can abolish memory…in this war, we know, books are weapons. And it is a part of your dedication always to make them weapons for man’s freedom.” — FDR
Thank you Mr. President! Books are immortal. We shall use them to fight the injustice and the obstacles. We can do it. And you know how????
By supporting and patronizing our local libraries! I do it, and you should too!
Can you guess who just got a library card? Me!!!!! I finally got an addressed and postmarked piece of mail so I could activate my Omaha Public Library cards. The boys and I went in last night, activated them, received a prize for already completing the first summer reading program level, and checked out more books. I am a little disappointed in the selection. But that’s because my old library was one of the best in the nation (and that’s not just me talking, they were given an honor). Even with some slight shortcomings, I am still in love with the local library.
I already checked out three books. Unfortunately, two of them are part of a series (and it’s not the first book). That’s okay, I’ll find the others in the series tomorrow when I visit another branch! I love the library!!!!!
