The Library - Poem by Ray Rivera

I've traveled the world
through books I've read
at the public library.
I learned of continents and their cultures
of people I've never met
by reading books
at the public library.
Read about philosophies, art, music
and of medical wonders
by reading books
at the public library.
There is so much to learn
and the learning is free
so take a tip from me
and read a book
at the public library.
