One of the new titles on our shelves is “Among Others” by Jo Walton, (a World Fantasy Award winner) a story about libraries and magic told in the form of a young girl’s diary.
Ellen brought the following quote from this book to our attention this morning. We wanted to share it with others who just love our interlibrary loan service!
Young Morwenna Phelps states in one diary entry: “Interlibrary loans are a wonder of the world and a glory of civilization. Libraries really are wonderful. They’re better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit on selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books quietly out of the goodness of their hearts.” from “Among Others” by Jo Walton (page 59).
