"I'm a sort of millionaire. I don't own a steam-yacht, or a Rolls-Royce, or a string of racehorces - yet. But for years past, I've been a book millionaire. That, in a couple of words, is what the public library system has meant to me".
~ Arthur Fairburn.
From The Reed Book of New Zealand Quotations, p.90.

"My guess is (it will be) about 300 years until computers are as good as, say, your local reference library in search."
~ Craig Silverstein, director of technology, (2004)
