Library quotes

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read. (Groucho Marx)

Librarian is a service occupation. Gas station attendant of the mind.

Information is the manager's main tool, indeed the manager's "capital," and it is he who must decide what information he needs and how to use it. (Peter Drucker)

A democratic society depends upon an informed and educated citizenry. (Thomas Jefferson)

The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries. (Carl Sagan)

“Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Children’s librarians are ambitious bakers: 'You like the jelly doughnut? I’ll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid.”

John Green

Ѕurfing around digg.com I noticed your site boоκmаrked
as: Blоgger: de / Bіbliotheek.

Now i'm assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a bunch of targeted traffic? I'ѵе
been looking аt doing some bookmarking for a
few of my sites but wаsn't certain if it would yield any positive results. Many thanks.

Hеy. I nοticeԁ your blog tіtle, "Blogger: de / Bibliotheek" doesn't really reflect the content of your web site. When creating your blog title, do you think it'ѕ moѕt beneficial to write it for Seаrch engіnе optimіzаtіon or for your visitors?
Τhіs is something I've been struggling with because I want good search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.
