In Praise of Public Libraries

...op-ed by Marilyn Johnson, who has written a whole book in praise of libraries.  Here's the part I liked best:

The people who welcome us to the library are idealists, who believe that accurate information leads to good decisions and that exposure to the intellectual riches of civilization leads to a better world. The next Abraham Lincoln could be sitting in their library, teaching himself all he needs to know to save the country."
