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!

The library was just that, sadly most use the online library now. It was surely an adventure at one time, and nice to know some still find beauty there. Enjoyed, ElsaR

"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!
