Libraries Are the Only Places I know...

A little poetic expression about libraries to change things up from the normal postings on this blog. Just in time for National Library Week. This was written by Mrs. Nowc Librarian At Large. Enjoy!

Libraries are the only places I know where.
Technology and old school go hand in hand,

Any subject or topic is not too silly or not too grand

Reading is encouraged and Exploration is expected.
Reading helps one to learn and understand
About our world … about ourselves.


Libraries are the only places I know where.
Fiction and non-fiction come together

Whatever the interest aliens, gnomes or birds of a feather
Each one waits patiently to be discovered and never

be forgotten, buried in the reader’s mind forever.


Libraries are the only places I know where.
A place is super amazing yet simplistic in mission

Young, old, rich or poor, none need permission
to scour the shelves or download a classic edition

of Shakespeare, Dickens or Twain without inhibition



Libraries are the only places I know where
Every school, college and neighborhood,
has one or at least they should
Madam Librarian wishes everyone understood
her love of sharing books and stories that are good
Her love of all libraries built out of brick or wood.

Libraries are the only places I know where.
there’s a little bit of paradise and perfection
when words and souls make a connection
through the pages of thought and reflection.

It may be a bit corny but it is how the library is seen through these eyes. Enjoy the week long celebration of libraries!
