Literary Quote: Calling All Library Lovers!

She manufactured library cards 
and checked out books to friends, 
then shocked them with her midnight raids 
to collect the books again.
~ Sarah Stewart (regarding Elizabeth Brown)

The Library by Sarah Stewart and illustrated by David Marshall (Square Fish 1995)

September is Library Card Sign Up Month.  This week's literary quote is from this lovely tale about Elizabeth Brown, a true book-lover (and collector)!  Bookish individuals, library lovers, book collectors, and all those who love to read, will want to read this heart-warming and funny story about how one girl's love for books and reading led to the start of a town's library.  

Here is a review of The Library . . .
“A story told in witty rhyme, about a bookish Elizabeth Brown, who . . . takes her greatest pleasures in life from her literary treats . . . This is a funny, heartwarming story about a quirky woman with a not-so-peculiar obsession. Cheers for Elizabeth Brown, a true patron of the arts.”—School Library Journal
