In partnership with the American Library Association come the gift for every bibliophile out there! This stunning collection of more than 200 quotations that capture the wit and wisdom of writers, readers, and of course, librarians

A good quote is a chance to hear a new perspective, to spur new ideas, or to affirm what we already know is true. Within these pages you’ll find some of the best quotes from books, authors, librarians, and readers who believe in the power of literature. They celebrate the many ways library and book lovers champion democracy and protect intellectual freedom, promote knowledge, and provide a safe haven to the human spirit. Some of the spectacular and inspirational quotes include:

"The pursuit of knowing was freedom to me, the right to declare your own curiosities and follow them through all manner of books."—Ta-Nehhisi Coates

"There are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with, but you will find the right film or the right book and it will understand you."—Björk Guðmundsdóttir

"When I was young, we couldn't afford much. But my library card was my key to the world."—John Goodman
