Two from Darien Library in Connecticut

These two poems come to us from Lisa, the Children’s Librarian at the Darien Library in Connecticut. Lisa was actually the FIRST person I had contact me about submissions, and she put up a display at her library to create interest and engage her community!

Thank you, Lisa!



– Miss Jeanne Altman, Darien Library


I love my library,

It’s my favorite place.

It has books and videos and a makerspace.

I love my librarians,

They are always so great.

They lend me Timmy Failure and Joshua Dread and even Big Nate.

I love my library,

The programs are fun.

We have science and TEA crafts and books in the sun.

Libraries and librarians,

Who would have guessed?

That I would think both of them are the best!



The Library

-Charlotte S., 10 years old

The library is such a fun place

I pick out books with grace

As I look at the spines and face the titles

I might stare for a while

I as this place is so much I have to go I’ve run out of space
