The SLA has prepared a poster featuring Barack Obama's quote about the library as a 'magic threshold':
'At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.'
The poster is a high-resolution pdf download, and is available exclusively to logged-in SLA members at the Downloadable Posters page.
The quote comes from Barack Obama's keynote speech at the ALA Annual Conference in 2005. The full speech may be read here.
