The following gifts were made to the Harriet P. Henry Center for the Book at the Maine Humanities Council in Harriet's memory as of September 29, 2004:

"The Center for the Book is more than bricks and mortar. It is a concept that literacy is an indispensable requirement for a democratic society and that the analysis of literature and discussion of text helps us to better understand our world and address the policy decisions that face us."

"'In the beginning was the word' and the word is captured in books. As we endeavor to better understand Islam these days, we learn that the prophet Mohammed had great respect for the Jews and the Christians because they were people of the Book. It is perhaps helpful to think of the Maine Humanities Council as people of the book. It is with pleasure, pride, and great humility that I realize that my friends have thrown the book at me."
