Why Libraries? Because ...
"Even the most misfitting child
Who’s chanced upon library’s worth
Sits with the genius of the Earth
And turns the key to the whole world"
- Ted Hughes
There was some concerns at the beginning that we wouldn't have enough chairs, but we managed to squeeze everyone in. The children who stood up during the presentation to say their piece did an amazing job! I for one, want to thank them so much for their hard work on the day. It really did so much for everyone there. We couldn't have done it without you! :-)
The above quote is particularly poignant, since this was read out to close the meeting. It was such a good quote that I thought it was worth sharing across the board.
Thank you so much to all the Burnage residents who attended today and to cllr Sue Murphy and Neil MacInnes and of course, to everyone for their time on a weekend.
You're all stars!
***UPDATE 06/04/2013*** By popular demand, I've been asked to send my poem to the local media. So I've designed a poster around it in case anyone can make use of it.
However, because you've been such a loyal bunch, especially in showing your support, I'm revealing the poster here first.
There is a link to a better quality one available for printing. It has been designed for A2 sized paper, but an A4 one is available here:
