Libraries are more than the information they curate. They are spaces for unity, meditation, yoga, resume writing, sewing, knitting, playing, studying, researching, cooking, gardening, language learning, music playing, reading, writing, dreaming - I could go on. Without libraries and all of us who work in them, these opportunities for engagement and education would be lost. Without libraries, misinformation and disregard for the truth threaten to become the norm. ~ Sarah Hammill, FLA President
