You're welcome. Thank you.
President Clarke, City Council, good morning, and the gallery, good morning. Honorable Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, thank you.
We, the Queen Memorial Library, accept this resolution in the honor and spirit it was given. Thank you, Councilman Johnson.
The Queen Memorial Library started December the 13th, 1912 to December the 13th, 2012. The Queen Memorial Library has been 100 years old as a free library. We had a centennial celebration December the 13th, 2012. It was from noon to 3:00 p.m. The celebration was very, very nice. I just wish you all could have been there. We had a very, very good time.
Queen Memorial Library has served in two communities, Grays Ferry for 33 years, Point Breeze for 67, and still remains in Point Breeze this day. The library is the fabric of our community.
We all know what libraries are about, but I always still love it for children, because children can go and read books and dream dreams and can take their selves out of whatever problems there are without leaving the building. Good source, good source, good source.
We can also -- they can also explore their horizons, just to be. They can do homework. It's also a safe haven for our children. But we just love it. We just love it. And they can do homework. And the library has many other projects that we do in our community. The library serves our community in so many ways. You go and read the morning newspaper or the magazine O.
There's just so many things that we can do, and I don't have all the time this morning to just say what we really, really want to say. I'm trying to capitalize everything in a few moments, because I know everybody has other obligations and has other life to attend. But I just want to say thank you.
You can also do job resumes. You can do community meetings in the library and so much other stuff. And I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you.
