Frances Clarke Sayers

  • ... librarianship ... is ... a profession that is informed, illuminated, radiated, by a fierce and beautiful love of books — a love so overwhelming that it engulfs community after community and makes the culture of our time distinctive, individual, creative, and truly of the spirit.

  • A love of reading encompasses the whole of life: information, knowledge, insight and understanding, pleasure; the power to think, to select, to act, to create — all of these are inherent in a love of reading.

Frances Clarke Sayers, U.S. librarian, children's writer

(1897 - 1989)
