1 Reading is a necessary and essential aspect of our lives and we gratefully recognize those initiatives that foster a lifelong love of books among our nation of readers…. At the end of my day, I greatly enjoy sitting down with a moving biography or a historical volume or a current volume or a current events bestseller. At the moment I am engrossed in Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. As Charles Scribner, Jr. said, "Reading is a means of thinking with another person's mind; it forces you to stretch your own." As a mental exercise, a learning tool or a treasured family pastime, reading is indeed one of life's most excellent adventures. Very truly yours, George E. Pataki [Governor of New York] Welcome to the SE Polk Senior High Media Center Southeast Polk Senior High School 8325 NE University Ave. Runnells, IA Need your library?
