“A sea of story waits for you behind the library door,
Don’t say we can’t afford it anymore”
Piers Cawley sings his “Child of the Library” song at OSCON in July 2011.Â I’d love this song simply for the music and his wonderful voice, but add the lyrics and it’s a powerful library protest anthem. Thank you to OSCON for recording this and to Piers for the song.
A Child of the Library
Iâ€™m a Child of the Libâ€™ry, it made me who I am,
It taught me about freedom and the fellowship of Man
A sea of story waits for you behind the libâ€™ry door,
Donâ€™t say we canâ€™t afford them any more.
