Day 1 – Librarians go Gaga

This Saturday is National Libraries Day, devoted to all types of libraries, library users, staff and supporters across the UK.

Help us celebrate all week by adding a heart shaped post-it note to our display, saying why you love libraries.

Alternatively, add an online post-it note at http://linoit.com/users/astraker/canvases/Love%20Libraries

Each day this week I will be adding a poem and a YouTube clip about libraries, just for fun, starting with my personal favourite…

My Library
By Varda One
It’s only a room with shelves and books,
but it’s far more magical than it looks
It’s a jet on which I soar
to lands that exist no more.
Or a key with which I find
answers to questions crowding my mind.
Building my habit of learning and growing,
asking and researching till I reach knowing.
Here, I’ve been a mermaid and an elf
I’ve even learned to be more myself.
I think that I shall never see
a place that’s been more useful to me.
With encouraging kind friends with wit
Who tell me to dream big and never quit.
It’s only a room with shelves and books,
but it’s far more magical than it looks.
