Library Inspiration

American poets Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman used the resources of language with imagination and power to encounter the world inside themselves and the larger world around them. We use them as our inspiration as we work together to acquire:

  • First, the research skills needed to find and use reliable information in the diverse and challenging information landscape of the 21st Century;
  • But second, also the background necessary to appreciate the achievements of the many writers, thinkers, artists, scientists, adventurers, hobbyists and technicians whose work can be found in our ever growing collection of books, magazines, and other materials. The work they have done, and the records they have left us, can help us understand and cope with the challenges we all face in our daily lives as human beings trying to survive on a lonely planet whose resources are being tested to the breaking point by our numbers and our lifestyles.
Walt Whitman

Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.

Walt Whitman

The brain is wider than the sky.

Emily Dickinson

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.

Robert Frost
