Thank you to writer and critic Malcolm Gladwell for this letter on behalf of our City's libraries.

Dear Friend,

As a kid, the highlight of my week was Wednesday evening, when my mom would drive me into town to the Public Library. The library was a magical place that gave me—a kid from a tiny town—a window on the whole world. I've never lost that feeling. And I've never felt more strongly that every child deserves that same window on the world.
