Poetry Friday: My First Memory (of Librarians)

I went searching for a poem tonight at Poets.org. 

 Love this from Nikki Giovanni:

My First Memory (of Librarians)

This is my first memory:
A big room with heavy wooden tables that sat on a creaky
       wood floor
A line of green shades—bankers’ lights—down the center
Heavy oak chairs that were too low or maybe I was simply
       too short
              For me to sit in and read
So my first book was always big

You can read the rest HERE.

Do you have a favorite first memory of librarians?

There’s more about Nikki Giovanni at her website.

Thanks goes to Andi who is hosting Poetry Friday at  a wrung sponge.

Happy Reading.
