Chicago Cultural Center - Wall inscriptions
Benjamin Franklin, Founder of Circulating Library
Born: MDCCVI Died MDCCXG
Born: 1706.. Died 1790
Public library is also called circulating library]
A library requires an act of faith which generations, still in darkness hid, sign in their night in witness of dawn.
He that loveth a book will never want a faithful friend, a wholesome counselor, a cheerful companion, an effectual comforter.
A good book is the precious life-blood of the master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose for a life beyond life.
The real use of all knowledge is this that we should dedicate that reason which was given us by God for the use and advantage of man
