April is School Library Month. Celebrate with the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and their gallery of authors. From Tony Abbott to Allen Zadoff, more than 100 authors including me have contributed quotes about how libraries have been an important part of their lives. Here's mine: When I was growing up, I rode my bike to the library and checked out as many books as I could fit in the wire basket on the front. I am a writer today because of my love for books and reading that began when I was young.
