Libraries and freedom

  1. 1. Libraries and FreedomTennessee Legislators Speak <br />
  2. 2. Congressman Steve Cohen <br />“The library is a special place in every community. I’ve always loved reading and learning and have spent many hours in the library as a child and in college and law school.  Our libraries are a valuable resource for our children and adults who are looking for a good book or a place to study.  I’m proud to support the Tennessee Library Association and its efforts to promote literacy throughout our great state.”<br />
  3. 3. Congressman Jim Cooper <br />“Tennessee’s libraries should be celebrated for providing an avenue to invaluable learning and reading opportunities.  Libraries play a vital role in our society, and I am proud to have the only congressional office in America located in a public library. Our rent helps keep our library strong.”<br />
  4. 4. Senator Lamar Alexander<br />“My mother said that because I had a library card from the day I was three, and music lessons from the day I was four, I was set for life.”<br />
  5. 5. Congressman Stephen Fincher <br />“Advancing literacy and improving local libraries is a priority for my wife Lynn and me.  Libraries offer Americans the opportunity to read and learn, and can open our minds to the wonders of our world.”<br />
