Word.

One of my favorite quotes from a true library legend.

“As librarians, our job is to bring people and information together…We do this by making sure libraries provide information and ideas across the spectrum of social and political thought, so people can choose what they want to read or view or listen to. Since libraries provide information to all of the people in their community, we find, from time to time, that not all of our users agree with all of the material we acquire. Some users find materials in their local library collection to be untrue, offensive, harmful or even dangerous. But libraries serve the information needs of all of the people in the community-not just the loudest, not just the most powerful, not even just the majority. Libraries serve everyone.”
