A Literary Prayer (with a nod to Irish Writer Samuel Beckett who made famous the literary truism that all poetry is prayer)

We are thought leaders

in the library space

This space to Inquire

                                    Imagine

                                                      Innovate

                                                                        Inspire

A place where words take wing

when we commit to the power of 10

building a culture of digital literacy and citizenship

and 38,000 reasons why

school libraries are a civil right

 

And so we must lead brave to

                                    Connect

                                               Curate

                                                       Create

                                                               Care

Our faith is in the future

of future-ready stories

without limits

without walls

without end,

Amen.
