2 Good morning/afternoon everyone. My name is Ms. Stout. When I was about nine years old, I got my first library card. I remember thinking that it was the coolest thing ever. I’d go to the library every single week during summer break when I was a kid and continue to frequent the library to this day because it provides me two important things: quality reading material and new knowledge—an education. One such woman shared this same passion as I do. Her name was Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of president Roosevelt. She gave a speech entitled “What Libraries Mean to the Nation” on April 1 st She spoke on the lack of libraries in the United States to the District of Columbia Library Association in hopes to persuade her audience on the importance of increasing/maintaining libraries in the nation so that the United States could become a well-educated nation.

6  Good morning everyone. My name is Ms. Stout. When I was about nine years old, I got my first library card. I remember thinking that it was the coolest thing ever. I’d go to the library every single week during summer break when I was a kid and continue to frequent the library to this day because it provides me two important things: quality reading material and new knowledge— an education. One such woman shared this same passion as I do. Her name was Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of president Roosevelt. She gave a speech entitled “What Libraries Mean to the Nation” on April 1 st She spoke on the lack of libraries in the United States to the District of Columbia Library Association in hopes to persuade her audience on the importance of increasing/maintaining libraries in the nation so that the United States could become a well-educated nation.

8 HISTORICAL/SOCIAL CONTEXT: Roosevelt’s topic and purpose of her speech was quite relevant for the time. During 1936, the United States was just recovering from the Great Depression. Schools were in shambles, libraries were in shambles, and people were out of jobs. Likewise, the United States was amidst World War II. There was a lot of sadness, turmoil, and hopelessness in the nation. Roosevelt wanted to focus on one way that America could become a better nation for all.

9 TYPE OF ARGUMENTATIVE APPEAL She does this through the argumentative appeals of logos and pathos. At the beginning of her speech, she uses logos when she says “We know that without libraries, without education, which is based largely on libraries, we cannot have an educated people who will carry on successfully our form of government …” Likewise, she also uses pathos in her speech by saying, “I had a letter the other day which was pathetic. It was from a man who said he was 74 years old. He wrote to ask me to see that the adult education classes in that particular community were not stopped, because it had meant so much to him to learn to read.”

10 I. Historical/Social: Great Depression, WWII= hard times= ways to become a better nation II. Two examples I.Logos: “We know that without…” II.Pathos: I had a letter the other day…”

11 Since Eleanor Roosevelt was speaking to an audience of people who are involved in libraries, she used logos to show the reasoning and the importance of having libraries in order to help the whole nation. She’s telling her audience that the establishment of libraries and the work they are doing is subsequently helping the entire nation. Roosevelt also uses pathos in her speech by telling a personal anecdote that connects the audience to her cause in hopes that they see the importance of libraries/education and that they feel value in their work; that they are actually changing lives of real American citizens.

13 Eleanor Roosevelt’s speech contained a powerful message on the importance of public libraries, education for all, and the well-being of the nation. Our nation should give a big thanks to Mrs. Roosevelt, librarians, and educators all over the country for working together and helping make the nation a more educated and successful place. Thank you.

14 I. Logos because she’s speaking to librarians; their work is helping the nation II. Pathos because their work is actually changing real people’s lives; connecting personally III. Review purpose of speech IV. Thanks to Eleanor Roosevelt, educators, and librarians = more educated and successful nation
