"Every farmer, every laborer, every fisherman can both read and write — and we think that books instead of being locked up in cupboards, far from the sight of students, should be distributed as widely as possible. The books of our library are therefore
passed from hand to hand without returning to the library shelves perhaps for years."
Very nice! I'm always tickled when a finder mentions that long time lag between finding the book and remembering to journal it... not least because it gives me hope that some of my books will check in under similar circumstances!
