Library Born

Animated image featuring snapshots of the Library building at various stages of constructionMammoth steel skeleton gazing from the hill,
Rising above the flagpoles,
Hissing flames sealing metal joints,
Zig zag stairs with alligator teeth climbing,
Floor upon floor upon floor,
Rectangular spaces open to construction,
Sea breezes whistling through hammering,
Roof top steel arms, uplifted,

Soon there will be priceless jewels encased in
this castle,
Carpeted walkways twining to the sky,
Glassy eyes opening to the world around,
Keyboards softly whispering ideas,
Minds Soaring,
Shelf upon shelf upon shelf of
Nourishing hearts and spirits with magical
powers to question, create, solve, dream,
University Gem
