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!

I love the library! there is this overwhelming sense of the recorded knowledge or creativity that I will never read to the end of... but I can try !

"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!
