David Morris:

In an age of greed and selfishness, the public library stands as an enduring monument to the values of cooperation and sharing.In an age where global corporations stride the earth, public libraries remains firmly rooted in local communities. In an age of widespread cynicism and distrust of government, the tax-supported public library has widespread, enthusiastic support.
