“Thinking of a library in broader terms, I am reminded of a quotation: that a library is never made, it grows. And putting it in another context: better to inherit a library is to collect one. And those that follow will have the opportunity to make this library grow and how it grows will determine if it is to be a great library or just a good one in a great building.” – Richard Nixon at the dedication of the Bonnie Bell Wardman Library in 1964.
