Comments

The Spirit Of A Library Elizabeth Dietzel, of the Cranston high School Library Circle

Upon the hearth the fire crackles;

And students, freed from textbook shackles.

Embark for lands of fame and glory

With well-known books of song and story.

Across the walls the firelight gleams

And falls upon the shelves of dreams,

All wrapp’d in covers red and blue-

Great dreams of authors old and new.

A library should with firelight glow;

It holds the greatest truths men know,

For youth has need of warmth and light,

To keep its life flame burning bright.

Bulletin of the Rhode Island Library Association v. 2, no. 2
