Gabriella Polony Mountain’s generosity made the Library’s newest art gallery possible. Appropriately, as the gleaming exhibit space opens on the second floor of the downtown Central Library, her bold, colorful sculptures, mosaics, stained glass, repoussé, and weavings are the first to fill it.

Surveys show that the percentage of Americans with libertarian leanings—preferring to maximize individual rights and minimize the role of government—has grown by a third in the past decade.

Libertarianism has deep roots in Western civilization and in American history, and Cato Institute Executive Vice President David Boaz has written the definitive guide. In a discussion of The Libertarian Mind: A Manifesto for Freedom, an updated version of his classic Libertarianism: A Primer, he examines a movement that has gained momentum in the wake of long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, chronic budget deficits, the costly war on drugs, expansion of executive-branch power, and revelations about National Security Agency abuses.
