The SAN Script The Week of November 28 – December 2

How often have we heard stories on how books have restored or saved people?  We heard it at Christian Community Day this year, we see it in our own students.  Here is another story that shows the power and the importance of our Learning Commons as the heart of our school.



Maya Angelou on How a Library Saved Her Life

“A library is a rainbow in the clouds.”

Maya Angelou on How a Library Saved Her Life

“You never know what troubled little girl needs a book,”Nikki Giovanni wrote in one of her poems celebrating libraries and librarians. “Knowledge sets us free, art sets us free. A great library is freedom,” Ursula K. Le Guin asserted in her beautiful essay on the sacredness of public libraries. “When a library is open, no matter its size or shape,” Bill Moyers wrote in his introduction to this photographic love letter to public libraries, “democracy is open, too.”

But no one has articulated, nor lived, this liberating and salvational function of libraries more fully than Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928–May 28, 2014).

In the autumn of 2010, shortly before Dr. Angelou received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Harlem’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture — a research division of the New York Public Library — acquired her papers. She visited NYPL for a public event celebrating the occasion, during which she broke into song to illustrate the life-saving role libraries have always played in the lives of the people during the darkest of times. She went on to share the story of how a library had saved her own life as a child.

October, 2010 – The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture’s Director, Howard Dodson, and New York Public Library President Paul LeClerc announce the acquisition of the personal and professional papers of Dr. Maya Angelou.
