"One of my many lasting memories of growing up in Augusta, Georgia is of the story-telling by the librarian at the Wallace Branch Library,” Norman shared. “This early acquaintance with books and the wondrous stimulation of the imagination made me a life-long lover of libraries. Books take us on a journey and we come back refreshed, renewed, awakened and ready for more. Long live libraries, these cathedrals of exploration. I am thrilled to become a Library Lion!"

Congratulations to international opera star and local legend and philanthropist Jessye Norman on becoming a New York Public Library Library Lion Honoree for 2018!

"Kids should be encouraged to speak from the inside out, and that is best done through the arts."

Jessye Norman is among the five honorees for this year's #LibraryLions. Listen as Norman describes growing up in the South, and the importance of storytelling in song.

On November 5, we honored our 2018 Library Lions: Ron Chernow, Francis Ford Coppola, Jessye Norman, Claudia Rankine, and Elizabeth Strout. Learn more about the honorees here: on.nypl.org/2JI5eNx
