" 'Books,' wrote Henry David Thoreau, 'are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance for generations and nations.' How right he was.
"Reading is one of Barbara's and my greatest joys. We both read pTC a lot as youngsters and still try to keep up with new releases. One of my favorites as a child was 'Treasure Island.'
"Reading enables us to enjoy the rewards of lifelong learning, and your library is a vibrant center of learning - use it!"
- George Bush, former president
