Public Libraries

Editor,
One of the things that fascinates me in the USA is public libraries. Books have to me an irresistible power. Books are my faithful friends, always there, ready to help, giving themselves with no reserve, never asking for something in return.

I was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1929. As I was growing up, all I could find to read were booklets of fascist propaganda, or religious pamphlets. So it was: Fascism and Religion, two forces denying light to my mind. I will never forget the immense damage that those two forces caused to me and my entire generation.

To live in the USA is for me a great privilege. Here, I’m free to choose, to walk inside public libraries and to feel at home. A friendly, happy home.
