Quotes

...onsibility as a library to record and inform about moments in history -- moments of great triumph or great tragedy," said NYPL President Tony Marx . "Holocaust Remembrance is an exhibition that pays tribute to the millions affected by the horrors of the Holocaust and continues the legacy of survivors who vowed to 'never forget.' It is also an opportunity to educate others about such atrocities so that we can ensure 'never again.'"
...As Charles Dickens observed, "Two portly sows are trotting up behind this carriage, and a select party of half a dozen gentlemen hogs have just now turned the corner." Why all the swine? They served as valuable street cleaners , and for some, they became a symbol of class equality between the city's rich and poor
..."This past winter, I visited Boston with my husband and toddler," says Ingrid Ahlgren, a writer for Academic Arrangements Abroad. "I was delighted to discover that the branch of the publicpublic library near our hotel had a free story hour for children on one of the days we were in town. My daughter loved it!"
Delfau died at Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago on Tuesday, January 4, 2000. At the time, Long told the Tribune , "He was a lovely, gentle man--and totally impractical. All he wanted to do was paint and design and read books. The rest didn't matter to him."
