Words of Recognition

A customer sent me this the other day:

My public library, the Barbara Bush Branch of the Harris County library system,

is an indispensable source for students, parents, children and youth, and

readers like myself.  A public library keeps all of us in touch with our heritage

as a country, the enormous range of knowledge of human achievements and

the people who have made contributions to the world.  A community without

a library is blind and condemned to a life of ignorance.  
 

He wanted to remain anonymous so I won't put his name. But I thought it was so nice and so true!
