“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life-raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.

A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted.” Caitlin Moran 2012, Libraries: The Cathedrals of the Soul (essay)
