Captured voices

"To those with ears to hear, 
libraries are really very noisy places.  
On their shelves 
we hear the captured voices 
of the centuries-old conversation 
that makes up our civilization."  

~ Timothy Healy

Every book on every shelf in every library captures the voice of its author. That's A LOT of voices, all a part of our human conversation through time. Libraries are noisy indeed!
