We believe in books. They are treasured friends, loyal companions, wise counselors, and our greatest teachers. In books we discover and dream on ideas. We preserve the past, and create the foundation from which we can pursue the possibilities of the future. Insightful. Engaging. Contemplative. Adventurous. Books challenge our minds, inspire our imaginations, and transform us through personal growth. We develop perspectives, and points of view. We learn new skills and improve old ones. Books make it possible for us to share all of this, and the journey of life with one another in the present, and across generations through time.
