Library Quote

"A modern librarian, who has faith in the law that 'BOOKS ARE FOR USE,' is happy only when his readers make his shelves constantly empty. It is not the books that go out that worry him. It is the stay-at-home volumes that perplex and depress him.
Every reader his or her book.
Every book its reader.
Save the time of the reader
A library is a growing organism."
Dr. S R Ranganathan India
"All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind

True guidance is like a small torch in a dark forest. it dosent show everything once. But gives enough light for the next step to be safe. "
Swami Vivekananda India
