    The Heart of the Library

    Adapted from “Library Poem” by Julia Donaldson: Everyone is welcome to walk through the door. It really doesn't matter if you're rich or poor. There are books in boxes and books on shelves. They're free for you to borrow, so help yourselves. The librarian's a friend who loves to lend, So see if there's a book that she can recommend. Read that book, and if you're bitten You can borrow all the other ones the author's written. We love our patrons, yes we do, And are grateful that you love us too. Happy Valentine's Day from Ohrstrom Library! #ohrstromlibrary #library #librariesofinstagram #librarylove #loveyourlibrary #heart #love #yarnheart #valentine #valentinesday #happyvalentinesday #stvalentine…
