Library Quote of the Day: “I grew up in neighborhoods most Americans were told to never drive through. I saw bullets, drugs and death in the same places I played tag and ball with my friends. Both of my older cousins died on the streets where I lived. I thought that was my destiny. But my mother didn't. She changed all of that. She saved my brother and me from being killed on those streets with nothing but a library card.”  –Dr. Ben Carson, pediatric neurosurgeon and presidential candidate

Anyone else ever feel like lending a book meant never seeing your book again? Or reflected on ways you've been impacted by books people have shared with you?

Today in Literature:  On August 17, 1945, George Orwell's Animal Farm was published. The book was delayed by the WWII paper shortage and very nearly a casualty of the war itself, either at the hands of German bombs or British politics.

Today in Literature:  On this day in 1834, nineteen-year-old Richard Dana boarded the merchant brig, Pilgrim for the Boston-California return voyage that would become “Two Years before the Mast.” His 1840 book, written with a desire to tell in "a voice from the forecastle" of the ordinary seaman's life, was an immediate international hit.

Today is the birthday of mathematician and librarian S. R. Ranganathan, born on August 12, 1892 in Tanjore in British-ruled India. Ranganathan was the most influential librarian of the twentieth century. His “Five Laws of Library Science” are universally regarded as articulating the core principles of the profession:
1. Books are for use.
2. Every reader his [or her] book.
3. Every book its reader.
4. Save the time of the reader.
5. The library is a growing organism.

As Islamic State militants set out to destroy Iraq's history and culture, including irreplaceable books and manuscripts kept in the militant-held city of Mosul, a major preservation and digitization project is underway in the capital to safeguard a millennium worth of history.
BAGHDAD (AP) — The dimly-lit, dust-caked stacks of the Baghdad National Library hide a treasure of the ages: crinkled, yellowing papers holding the true stories of sultans and kings; imperialists and socialists; occupation and liberation; war and peace.
