Elizabeth Gilbert declares her love of libraries in Visibility video

CHICAGO - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the bestselling book "Eat, Pray, Love" talks about her love of libraries in a new video that can be seen by visiting the American Library Association's Public Information Office (PIO) blog, Visibility @ your library.

In the video, Gilbert remembers learning how to read and even receiving her first kiss at the library. She also says she spent much of her time writing at the New York Public Library.

"I cannot overstate the importance of libraries in my life," she says.
