Something Delightful

We are working on a few ideas of how to use quotations to make your experience at the library a little more delightful. Can you help us out and share a memorable line that stands out to you? We’re hoping for quotes that evoke our mission as a public library: Sparking Curiosity. Inspiring Learning. Creating Connections.
