Edward Abbey once said of wilderness "we may need it someday not only
a refuge from excessive industrialism but also as a refuge from
authoritarian government, from political oppression." I think we need
public libraries in the same way we need wilderness. Both are
of a king. Both are storehouses of diversity.

Anna Kirkpatrick, quoted in Beyond Words: BC's Public Libraries Are
Changing Lives.
