25 Quotes About Libraries, The Most Magical Places On Earth

I love libraries. I have spent innumerable hours in my school library, the club library in our colony, the college library and then a circulating library which was within walking distance from our home, for several years. It is these libraries that turned the reader in me into a serial reader. The librarians of all these places made a library worth visiting.

This post is to honor of the coolest places and coolest people I know, the libraries and the librarians! Here are 25 quotes about libraries, the most magical places on earth
