Overdue Notice by David Drake
Poems from the Library

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Libraries may not seem a fertile ground for poetry-even to librarians. Unlike library poet Drake, many in the profession lose sight of the charm and excitement of libraryland in the humdrum of the profession. These poems deal with themes universal to librarians, such as buildings, patrons, books, and friends. Ranging from humorous to acerbic, introspective to whimsical, the poems war on stereotype while modeling the vibrancy of our fascinating profession.
