‘Found Among The Shelves’

by Peter Jackson

“I’ve found a secret hideaway,
A magic fairyland,
A place where I can ride away
On horseback across the sands,
Live the life of a highwayman
Or kill an evil witch,
Then save the kingdom from aliens
And end up super rich.
That place is the public library,
Adventure here is free,
But it’s also a peaceful sanctuary
Where I can just be me.”

Create a poem for National Libraries Day 2016

Saturday 6 February

Do you remember your first visit to the library? Did a helpful member of staff explain the Dewey Decimal system? Perhaps you were enticed by the video rental service? Maybe you’re still planning your first visit? We would love to hear about your first library experience so why not submit a poem to the poetry blog?


There is no prize for the submission, but we would like to publish your poem on the blog. We cannot guarantee which poems will be included but will try to add as many as possible.
