Turning his home into a public library

In Manila, a man has turned his home into a public library. The most poignant quote comes at the end of the article (I’ve already printed it and posted in my office): “You don’t do justice to these books if you put them in a cabinet or a box. A book should be used and reused. It has life, it has a message. As a book caretaker, you become a full [person].”
