Bonus Quote of the Day (Cindy Czesak, on Libraries as ‘Vital Community Anchors’)

“The New Jersey Library Association strongly believes that $1 per-capita, or an additional $5 million budget appropriation, would restore our state per-capita aid program for local libraries. Public libraries are not just nice amenities for communities to have if they can afford them. Rather, they are vital community anchors essential to our state’s educational, governmental and economic development goals.”-- Cindy Czesak, “Public Libraries: The Ultimate Value Meal,” The Record (Bergen County, NJ), June 2, 2013

The image accompanying this post is in my hometown, the Englewood Public Library—just the kind of “vital community anchor” praised by Ms. Czesak, director of the Paterson Public Library.
