America\'s libraries, first lady Laura Bush said Tuesday that she\'s off to a $5
million start -- with help from her mother-in-law.

Mrs. Bush said the donations will help expand the collections of neglected
libraries ``from fact and fiction to periodicals and prize-winning books.\'\'

doors to learning are always open.\'\'
