Dear young citizens of Troy,
Many centuries ago in Asia Minor in a city with the same name as yours, literature was born. One of the greatest poets who ever lived sat among his people and told stories of the fabulous past. And then their through the years until the legends became fact, the fact not so much of history but of the word, of language.
Your new library is the home of language, yours and all theirs from the beginning. In it you will learn how others lived and though and from it you will learn to live and think better for yourselves
