Barack Obama on Knowledge and Librarians

"At the dawn of the 21st century, where knowledge is literally power, where it unlocks the gates of opportunity and success, we all have responsibilities as parents, as librarians, as educators, as politicians, and as citizens to instill in our children a love of reading so that we can give them a chance to fulfill their dreams. That's what all of you do each and every day, and for that, I am grateful."

-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), in an adaptation of his keynote speech at the Opening General Session of the 2005 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, "Bound to the Word," American Libraries 36, no. 7 (Aug. 2005): 48-52.
