"We believe that libraries are vital in helping their communities find and use information, and are essential to supporting student achievement. That belief is at the core of what we do every day. During National Library Week, we're especially pleased to celebrate the libraries and librarians. And encourage everyone to take advantage of the tremendous public service they provide."—Marty Kahn, CEO of ProQuest
