Quotations On Libraries

A library is the brass ring to the Merry-Go-Round of Life. It holds wisdom, history, stories, and opens the mind. These quotations on libraries from Charles French are brilliant. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

charles french words reading and writing



“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

                                                                              Jose Luis Borges



“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”

                                                                                  Albert Einstein



“A library is a place where you can live a thousand lives. So why are you waiting when you could be living? Visit your library today.”

                                                                                 Stephen King


“Libraries are the democratization of knowledge. With only the need for a library card, anyone can access the information of the world.”

                                                                         Charles F. French

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    Hope you are doing well Jenny!!

    • Jennie says:

      Opher!! So good to hear from you. Yes, all you say is true. I am doing well. How did you drop off the face of the earth? Did you take a long blogging break?

      • Opher says:

        No Jennie. I’m still blogging away but I think wordpress did something. I stopped receiving posts and my traffic dropped by two-thirds! It put me out of contact with lots of people. Do you know how Cheryl is?

      • Jennie says:

        Shame on WP. They have dropped my bloggers in the past, but never in a large quantity like you experienced. Refresh my memory on Cheryl.

    Hi, dear Jennie,

      Thank you so much! What would we do without libraries? They’re like our founding fathers. Did you know, the first thing German scientists who came to America in WWII did was get a library card? Isn’t that wonderful?
      Wishing you the best, too. 🙂
