“Adoption stories—public libraries are a great achievement of American society”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”– Dr. Seuss

Public libraries are a great achievement of American society and an essential part of having an educated and literate population. There is a strong correlation between reading proficiency and academic success at all ages. Good literature awakens, expands, enhances and refines our humanity. Our culture is dependent on decoding the written word to reach our full potential by developing a complete picture of the world. Reading determines who we are as individuals. Collectively, the level of education we achieve is an indicator of how great our society will become.

“The child who doesn’t read has no advantage over those who can’t.” —Judith Land

Memoirs have become more popular in recent years because they are the best way to find out what it’s like to be someone else. Popular memoirs provide a clear understanding of the relationship between significant events and the emotional reactions to those events. The narrative style of the author, the tone, and the effectiveness of the dialogues, enhances the reading experience by helping the reader comprehend the situation, the passions driving the main characters, what they want and who opposes them, and the barriers that must be overcome. When this is done well, the reader experiences the same feelings of pain in response to hardships, and joys expressed as triumphs and celebrations. At the end of a good story there is almost always a paradigm shift in the reader’s worldview of life’s trajectory.
