Essay Contest! Win $$

Call or come in to the youth services department for more information and an entry form!

The Friends of the Library are sponsoring an essay contest for grades 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12. In honor of National Poetry Month simply write 500 words or less interpreting Elizabeth Barret Browning’s famous Sonnet #43:

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
