“I have loved libraries since I was a child and rode my bike to the nearest library to find a book to fall into. Reading is a way to escape, but more than that, it is a way of learning that can transform a person’s life. I love libraries because they offer equal access to learning for everyone; they are community gathering spaces; they are safe places. All are welcome.” – Sarah Bain, Spokane Public Libraries

“I’ve always been a reader, always been a book collector, starting when I was a real little kid, saving my allowance, going to yard sales,always been attracted to older, secondhand stuff, too…Being kind of a misfit kid in Spokane in the 70s and the 80s, books were better friends than a lot of people. Having had that kind of experience with books, I wanted to provide it for other people.” – Nathan, owner, Giant Nerd Books
