It Tolls For Thee

Library closings are usually never welcome unless it means an opening of a new, better facility like I mentioned in an earlier post this week. This one was mentioned a few days ago and contains a link to a Library Use Value Calculator. [via]

A Challenge
I'm searching for the author of the following quote which may be inexact:
"You can get along better with libraries and no money than with in times of money and no libraries." I have looked several places and not yet found it. If anyone knows the origin of this quote, please contact me.

"Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries."

Attributed to Anne Herbert, and supposedly first appeared in the Whole Earth Catalog.

Here's the authoritative, can't possibly be wrong, 100% surefire place to start finding the truth...
