More Librarian Love

A shot of one of my favorite libraries. OK, I don't check out books here, but I did visit. It's so gorgeous:

Library of Congress Reading Room

by Andromeda Jazmon

snow falling
out the library windows;
pages turning


School Librarian
By Kristine O’Connell George

Mrs. Thompson knows I love sad stories.
The books she lends me
come with
hidden bookmarks­

folded tissues tucked into
the sad parts.

I'd love to be in that beautiful room right now. Andromeda's haiku is perfect. Glad I stopped here first today on my way to write. :)

It is a gorgeous library.

I love the School Librarian poem. Lovely.

Thanks for stopping by, M and Toby! I hope you both got a lot of writing done.
