National Library Week

NYC Public Library by tanism

It is National Library Week this week, April 10-16. I wouldn't have the love for books that I have today if it weren't for my local library as I was growing up. It makes me sad that the funding for libraries keep getting cut in so many cities.

The American Library Association (ALA) is holding a twaiku (twitter haiku) contest asking people to share their love of libraries on twitter in 140 characters or less. Today is the last day of the contest and all tweets must be tagged #nlwtwaiku. Winners will receive an Amazon gift certificate! Also, you follow @atyourlibrary on twitter for the latest ALA updates.

Here is my haiku:
A child who loved books
Unlocked worlds of wonderment
So many thank yous

Feel free to share your own haiku in the comments!


  1. I love your Haiku and your new blog! I already have it signed up my my google reader! Yay! :)
