“Libraries: The medicine chest of the soul.”

Create a Place for Books

The inscription over the door at the Library at Thebes says: Libraries: The medicine chest of the soul. Perhaps “for the soul” would be more appropriate, but I’m not going to nitpick because I love the sentiment. Sometimes with all of the technology we have, I fear we forget about the greatest resource we have for taking us far far away, teaching us, engaging children to learn, sparking our imaginations and giving good company: books.

Here are some ways to celebrate books in your home.   (becky)
