Library Love

Lingering among the stacks Interval of serenity, a luxury to Borrow a world, then bring it back Riches of printed page, once few Are carried throughout the community Requiring only a card to belong Young and old both given opportunity Lending literacy to growing minds, strong Out of many streets, they share the room Vaulted ideas have a place to bloom Encyclopedias of adventures to unpack! 1/22/19

"encyclopedias of adventures to unpack" reminds me that when we returned home from school our mother was reading the World Book"for fun" and we thought she was nuts. I no longer think that, as I often find myself doing exactly this.

One disadvantage to being online is you can't just browse randomly - I miss that!
