This really happened to me while working at the college bookstore!  Two days before the semester started, all of our metal shelves collapsed.  This would be cute to show students at the end of a long period of research:)

Quotes About Reading

Quotes About Reading | Creativity in the School Library | Scoop.it

1500 quotes have been tagged as reading: William Nicholson: 'We read to know that we are not alone.', Groucho Marx : 'I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”

 

Eventually I'll have a wall covered with quotes about books and reading.  I'm assuming this is a good collection, because the link is blocked by my school filters...grrrrrrr.

Director sees library's role as creation hub - Lawrence Journal World

Director sees library's role as creation hub - Lawrence Journal World | Creativity in the School Library | Scoop.it
 “Libraries really are about making a connection,” Allen said. “You put people and data together, and the people benefit from it.

“But to do it well, you have to get to know people so you can show them the stuff that enriches their lives. It is a simple process, but to me it is the best part of being alive.”
