For The Love of Reading and Learning!
READ Writes: Feb 2015
We would like to encourage literacy with reading tips or quotes related to reading and the sheer fun, joy, adventure and pleasure of reading and lifelong learning with READ/OC learners, their volunteer tutors, our Friends of READ/OC, our OCPL Branch partners, OC Community Resources and County of Orange colleagues, and community partners throughout Orange County.
Forward your own reading, writing or lifelong learning tips or share a favorite quote to READ/OC so we can encourage each other to read, write and learn! Send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or forward them through library mail to READ/OC at OCPL Headquarters.
Here are a few learning inspirations from writers who love to read to help get you started:
―When things go right, I read. When things go wrong, I read more.
Sara Nelson :: So Many Books, So Little Time: A Year of Passionate Reading
―The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
Dr. Seuss :: I Can Read With My Eyes Shut
―We read to know we are not alone.”
CS Lewis :: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
―It is not true we have only one life to live. If we can read, we can live as many lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.”
SI Hiyakawa :: Language in Thought and Action
―A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.”
“Words are the voice of the heart.”
