Wednesday in Wyoming -- March 30, 2016

Our final quote for the month comes from beloved author Dr. Seuss who says,  "The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."  Do you agree with him?

I hope you've enjoyed this month's exploration of the quotation wall at the Laramie County Library.  If you're ever in Cheyenne, stop by.  The interior of the library is even more fascinating than its exterior.

Where are you going today?  If you agree with James Earl Jones -- and I do -- you won't know until you start reading.  So, pick up a book and start the journey.

As we continue our exploration of the quotation wall at the Laramie County Library, I couldn't resist sharing this one with you.

What do you think about the concept of the brain as a container?

I hope library patrons stop to read this as they climb the steps to the main entrance, because Charles Eliot's description of books is so valid.

Do you consider books your friends?  I do.  And I agree with Eliot that they're both counselors and teachers.

Who can live without books?  Who would want to?  Not I.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- March 2, 2016

Thomas Jefferson said, "I cannot live without books." I agree with him, but I'd add "or libraries" to his statement.  That's one of the reasons I investigated the Laramie County Library before moving to Cheyenne.  It was in an older, much smaller building then but had everything I needed at the time.  Now it's housed in a beautiful new environmentally-sound building with facilities only dreamt about a dozen years ago.

As you can see, the theme of reading is highlighted in the statue shown above. But what are those lighter colored blocks on the wall next to the main entrance?  They're reading-related quotations from famous people.

I'm going to highlight some of my favorites this month, so be sure to check back each week to see who said what.
