Poetry Friday: Inventory

The worse part about June is the library books need to come in two weeks before school ends to do inventory. My assistant  and I feel like grinches and grumblebunnies as we plead and cajole students to find and return books. This year I am trying something new.   For every student who gets their book in on time, their name will go into a drawing for a chance to win some books. 

Today’s poem  is in honor of those who cannot part with their books.


 June arrives
and library books
must return.

I can’t find
mine. Not finished reading yet.

Book lovers resist.

 Poetry Friday is HERE

This is the 48 Hour Reading Challenge Weekend and that’s what I am doing.  What ar you up to this weekend?

Happy Reading.

  1. It’s no fun being a grinch and grumblebunny — sometimes it feels like parenthood has too much of that! Your book raffle idea is great.
    Enjoy your reading challenge weekend!

  2. What a great idea to promote summer reading and get your books back.

    Can’t wait to see what you are reading for the 48HBC.

  3. Definitely stealing your prize drawing idea for next year! I still have about 38 books out; most of them have been located, they just don’t want to part with them.
