Why read?


“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” 

 - Harry S. Truman

“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations--something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.” 

 - Katherine Patterson
