The Temples of Knowledge: Beautiful Animation Depicts How Libraries Change Human Lives

“Knowledge sets us free, art sets us free. A great library is freedom,” Ursula K. Le Guin wrote in her amazing essay about the sacredness of public libraries. Also: “a library is a rainbow in the clouds,” Maya Angelou said in reflecting on how a library saved her life. Thanks to the library, James Baldwin read his way from Harlem to the literary pantheon. “You never know what troubled little girl needs a book,” Nikki Giovanni wrote in one of her wonderful poems that celebrates libraries and librarians.


The life-changing power of libraries is what humanistic oral history powerhouse StoryCorps celebrates in The Temple of Knowledge, which is a lovely animated memoir by Ronald Clark; his father served as a custodian of a New York Public Library branch in a period when library caretakers and their families used to live among the books.

  3. Very good animation, which really displays what is happening in society and in education in general. Particularly acute now may be the writing of creative works in educational institutions. I'm pretty sure that success of a goof essay first of all depends on the topic you have to write about. So be carefull. Second part of a good essay for me is an ability to write good texts, to have your own opinion in particular question. And just to have fun doing it. As for me, I'm not good in writing but good in maths! So I have to order my paper works in litterature or languages not to lose good marks. Good for me there are wide choice of services like https://paperleaf.ca/pay-for-essay/ which offer professional help. My life would be much more difficult without it.
