Medicine for the Soul (Quote of the Day)

27 September 2009

The quote over the door of the Library at Thebes reads "Medicine for the soul." What could possibly be more true about a library?

In this vein of the importance of books and libraries, I have a spot of good news for the weekend: the Free Library of Philadelphia, which was threatened with closure due to budget cuts in Pennsylvania, will remain open. Details and a thank you from library staff can be seen here. Libraries: 1, Budget: 0. For now, at least.
