This wonderful quote was posted on the St Louis SLA discussion board.

From a-word-a-day (http://wordsmith.org/awad/) – besides interesting words, each daily e-mail has a good quote. This is today’s:

There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public

Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth

receives the slightest consideration. -Andrew Carnegie, industrialist

(1835-1919)

In the interview for KWMU’s St. Louis on the Air, Waller McGuire talks about Andrew Carnegie and his contribution to libraries. It makes you want to read about him.
