"Hence if the library is, as Borges wishes it to be, a model of the universe, we attempt to make it into a universe at the level of a man, and I remind you that the library at the level of a man also means a joyful library, (...) and thus a library that one visits eagerly and which transforms itself gradually into a great machine of spending free time, such as the Museum of Modern Art, where one can go to a cinema, stroll around the garden, watch sculptures and eat a two-course meal. I know that UNESCO agrees with me: 'A library (...) should be easily accessible, and its gates open to all members of the community, who can make use of it freely, regardless of race, skin colour, nationality, age, gender, faith, language, marital status and level of education' ".
