Love having a place to come and click on a link. all this poetry has buoyed me as the district talks more and more about library budget cuts.

I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the poetry posts this month. I need the links for myself.

P. S. So sorry to hear about the library cuts. When I retired from my job as an elementary librarian in 2004, no one was hired to take my place. Instead, it was decided that the the two other librarians would have to cover five schools.
