      Focuses on the role of the public library as a community center. Quid pro quo attitude that most community centers have towards the public; Thoughts on the public library, which alone can claim to provide access to the community at large regardless of age, income, or ability; Belief that there is a tacit agreement between libraries and society, that there is no other place where dignity and liberty complement each other in the same manner.
