The Library Card is a Passport to Wonders

alex atkins bookshelf quotations“The library card is a passport to wonders and miracles, glimpses into other lives, religions, experiences, the hopes and dreams and strivings of ALL human beings, and it is this passport that opens our eyes and hearts to the world beyond our front doors, that is one of our best hopes against tyranny, xenophobia, hopelessness, despair, anarchy, and ignorance.”

Libya Bray, author of two best-selling young adults trilogies, Gemma Doyle trilogy (2003-2007) and the Diviners trilogy (2012-2017). Bray studied theatre at the University of Texas, and moved to New York to began her career as a playwright before she switched to writing young adult fiction.
