 Sidney Sheldon, best-selling novelist, Broadway playwright and Hollywood TV and movie screenwriter, is noted for the following quote:  “Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.”
