The Bard of Bucks New Uni Libraries

How libraries have changed! A reflective poem to cheer us up at the start of the week from Clive, our resident bard in the library …

Dear students,

It’s so good to see you at home in the library, without our having to resort to bribery.

There once was a time when we had just one book and thousands queued up just to have a quick look.

We paid everyone a bagful of groats, and for no charge at all we dry-cleaned their coats.

Clean outer garments with nothing to pay, and a squint at a volume, Ah! those were the days!

Yours literally Clive W.
