Description

If banks were keen on service; And cared about us, too, They'd open nights and weekends; The way libraries do. - ""Don't Bank on It""; Our library is quiet, untroubled, serene; The shelves are in order, exact and pristine; The tables and chairs are aligned, straight and formal; But soon we will open and get back to normal. - ""Perfection""; This is a collection of poems for the library minded that grew out of the poet and librarian David Drake's desire ""to poeticize the things and personages of our library world"" and his belief that the charm and excitement of libraries can be overlooked even by those in the profession. The poems deal with universal themes and with those common to librarians, and range from amusing to sharp, thoughtful to capricious. The poems are divided into six sections: Arenas of Possibility; Librarians/Cybrarians; The Reading Life; Our Patrons, Ourselves; The Writing Life; and Tools of the Trade.
