on libraries

“I should mention here that librarians tell me never to tell this story, and especially never to paint myself as a feral child who was raised in libraries by patient librarians; they tell me they are worried that people will misinterpret my story and use it as an excuse to use their libraries as free day care for their children.”

~Neil Gaiman, “Why Our Future Depends on Libraries, Reading and Daydreaming”
