Library Chorus

There's room for all
Let not the meam
Or learned dean
Restrict the books
T' a favoured few
We've Books for all.

Books for the rich
And Books for the poor
Books for the man
And Books for the dame.

Books for the sick
And Books for the fit
Books for the blind
And Books for the dumb.

Books for the bungler
And Books for the wrangler
Books for the burgher
And Books for the cotter

Books for the lettered
And books for the fettered
We've Books for all
For one and all.

Books for all; yes, Books for all
If and only if you add
Books for the land
And Books for the sea.

 -- Prof. S. R. Ranganathan
