The Books Are Weeping

"The Books Are Weeping," by Brenda Scott Royce, at the Huffington Post.

"My first visit to a school library forever changed the way I think about books. After giving us a tour and describing the Dewey decimal system in terms kindergarteners could understand, the librarian told us that while some books were always in demand, others had never been checked out at all. She said that if you listened closely, you could actually hear these overlooked books crying."
