Barack Obama on libraries

At the moment that we persuade a child, any child,
to cross that threshold,
that magic threshold into a library,
we change their lives forever, for the better.
It’s an enormous force for good.
Barack Obama

This quote, which I've used in various library documents here, is from a speech Barack Obama gave in 2005 to the Annual Conference of the ALA.  You can read the speech here.
