Quote from Andrew Carnegie 

"I choose free libraries as the best agencies for improving the masses
of the people, because they give nothing for nothing. They only help
those who help themselves. They never pauperize. They reach the aspiring
and open to these chief treasures of the world -- those stored up in books.
A taste for reading drives out lower tastes."
