Public Libraries Nourishing the Mind

"Public Libraries Nourishing the Mind." PCWorld / Phil Shapiro.
San Franciso: PCWorld Online, July 23rd 2010.
"Recall, the mission of public libraries is to nourish the mind. As it happens, the mind lives within the human body. When the human body gets hungry, it often leaves the library. In a knowledge economy, we can't let that happen. We need all brains on deck, so to speak. To nourish the mind, you've got to nourish the body. When you're hungry, your mind starts wandering. Soon after, your body starts wandering."
