He spoke on Honoring the Past, Shaping the Future at the Carnegie Lecture Hall. The former president of the New York Public Library offered the following observations about libraries:

• “Libraries are the most tolerant institutions we have...where people lower their voices and raise their minds.”

• “Libraries have always found a way to fit new media to traditional purposes.”

• “No university is greater than its library.”

• “The library is not an ossified is the DNA of our culture.”
