At Your Library

Written for the Association for Library Services to Children’s “Kids!@ Your Library” Campaign to encourage kids and families to use their library. I hope you use and support your!

Let me tell you something ‘bout a place I know
You find one almost anywhere you go
It could be on the corner, could be down the hall
You know, I’ve even seen them in the mall
You can walk with your feet if it’s not too far
Or get your mom or dad to take you in the car
Everything is free there, waiting in the stacks
They’ll let you take it home, but you’ve gotta bring it back

At your library
There’s so much to see, so much to do
At your library
There’s a whole big world just waiting for you
At your library
So much to do, so much to see
At your library
If you’re gonna go, then you gotta take me

You go to the library, you walk in the door
It’s like walking in a jungle you’ve got to explore
There’s so much to learn, so much to know
There’s something calling to you everywhere you go
There are magazines and DVDs and anywhere you look
There are thousands and thousands and thousands of books
If that’s not enough, then don’t forget
You can always go surfin’ on the internet


They’ve got funny tales and fairy tales
And very, very scary tales
Books about the weather and snow and rain and when it hails
Books about cats and mice and dogs
And hogs and logs and bogs and frogs and even little pollywogs
There’s a billion things, I know that I have missed some
But you can look them all up with the Dewey Decimal system
Everything is yours, it’s not that hard
All you’ve gotta get is a library card
