Here’s a slightly older post I like:
I took these photos on my lunch break today. It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the library is. I was studying the arch and thinking about it as a portal of sorts. It is a portal to intellectual freedom. Do you have any idea how important that is today? It is the only place where information is shared backed by truth and research. There is no bias. Everyone can access information whenever they’d like. You can even take a book home and read it privately. Forget Google. Sure it brings you the answers in a snap, but at the cost of your privacy. Remember the word integrity? I am not sure anyone does. But I am glad that there is still an institution that understands the word. Thank you libraries.
