Triumph of the Spirit

Did we not say that the libraries will triumph? Hmm, probably not those exact words, but it was on our list. Today, we bring you the story of a library that defies the odds, and a man who loved books. Reading this story made us cry, especially because we identified with Rudy Eiler and the library he wanted.

And it’s our kind of joint:

“How to Get Filthy Rich, Even If You’re Flat Broke” recommends reading obituaries so you can assume a dead man’s identity to throw creditors off the hunt. “Adventures in Science with Doris and Billy” — circa 1945 — advises: “If you could fly in an airplane to the moon, you might reach it in about 100 days.”

    Awwwww, I loved that story! Even if Rudy didn’t read romance. (g) Yes, I can relate to him. I’m with him – with books, you can go anywhere.
