Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
Peace is not the silent result of violent repression.
Peace is the generous,
tranquil contribution of all
to the good of all.
Peace is dynamism.
Peace is generosity.
It is right and it is duty.
- Óscar Romero

In 1971, Marguerite Hart, the first children’s librarian at the Troy Public Library, contacted a number of public figures asking them to write about the importance of libraries and about their experiences of reading. This was author E. B. White’s response.
More reflections on the significance of libraries can be found in The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson.
