The foundation of education is ideas and information - how to access it,
use it, interact with it, and expand on it.  Reading is the key to
information.  Not only is reading the key--it is the single most important
factor that effects the personal and professional success of people.  The
library is fundamental to education.  It is a *laboratory* for so much of
what goes on in the classroom - alphabet, math (dewey system), point of
view, topic sentence, informational text, etc.  The library enhances and
contributes to all subjects taught in the school.  The librarian is the
"king or queen" of collaboration.

I was reading an article and found a wonderful definition of the library.  “We
are a place for the curious, for creativity, a place for learning, a place
to experiment."

I love libraries!
