Many thanks to all of the

talented library-loving poets!

Voters chose the top three:

So much to explore,
Hours and hours the time passes,
Pay meter once more.

Libraries hold gifts
That are food for mind and heart.
Come, browse and partake!

Sister Bernice King

Children’s story time
A quiet place to gather
Where is bathroom key?

Maria DiMaggio

And they’re all winners:

Haikus are easy
but sometimes they don’t make sense
library cat-fish

Miriam Etingof


SAT time soon…
Students are panicking. Why?
They are well-prepared.

Roosevelt Strange

In the children’s room
We pored over apartments
And found our new home.

Ilana Morrison


Reading a book is
Like an adventure in space
or a baseball game.

Quiet and fun when shared with
A friend and my mom

Library time is
over the best with your mom
and a good book too

Of books to enjoy!

Won’t have to buy any books
For 10 to 12 years!

From behind the desk
We meet all sorts of people
And give our service

Wander through stacked books
Surrender to their knowledge
Inspired to read!

At the library,
notice the eager youngsters.
Spell-bound with their books.

that are food for mind and heart.

In peaceful quiet
the Library Reading Room
Soothes the weary heart.
