Vintage quotes about libraries and librarians

These attention-catching quotes about libraries and librarians are best suited for school and public library walls.

Libraries matter more than ever before. And more than ever before, they deserve to be promoted.

Today, libraries are way more than just a place with free books. They are thriving community halls, cultural centers, and instant knowledge hubs. Librarians help local communities grow, adjust to the changing world, and survive hard times.

Library services are being constantly extended to new areas: from free access to the latest technology, to user-friendly workspaces, to digital literacy courses, to online book club groups.

We compiled a list of the best quotes about libraries and librarians before (by the way, it’s one of our most popular lists of all time). However, when it comes to promoting reading, books, and libraries, there is no such thing as “enough.”

Library quotes you will see below is a tribute to the classic book cover design, and the beginning of a new series of quotes for modern book lovers.

You are welcome to share the quotes with your friends and followers – not only during Library Lover’s Month or Library Card Sign-up Month.

If you’d like to get the quotes in a higher resolution, on a poster, magnet, or mug, I have made them available in popular online merch stores: Redbubble, Zazzle, and Society6.

Do you have a few minutes more? I’m delighted to present our monthly literary calendars. They include not only the most important dates and events, but also a reading challenge for each week, a fun fact, and a bookish quote.
