Happy Libraries Week!
I grew up raiding my native library on an virtually weekly foundation, leaving with armfuls of books and racing via them excitedly so I may seize some extra.
Last week, I returned to my native library after a pandemic-induced hiatus, and it felt so good to be again with some new studying materials to devour!
It’s no secret that out libraries right here within the UK are moderately in danger – however they provide a lot to our communities, and never simply by way of books to learn! They’re areas to collect and study, locations individuals can entry the web and important providers, and gateways to alternative.
Naturally, to mark Libraries Week 2021, I penned a poem, celebrating these particular locations.
