After days of hotly-contested deliberation among staff, Georgetown Neighborhood Library finally chose the winners of their 2019 Haiku Contest in honor of Asia Pacific American Heritage Month. There were so many good entries, and a wide diversity of opinion from judges of which was the best. The winners are:
See my Asian eyes
Where are you fro they ask -- I
- Kathleen Guevara, Adult Winner
Thanks to Large Print Books,
I CAN NOW READ IN MY BED
THANK YOU LIBRARY.
-Patricia Fairfield, Adult Winner
Turning paper sheets
Librarians here to greet,
Best place on R Street!
-Daisy Overmyer, Teen Winner
Light as a feather
the sound flowing though the air
music is perfect
-Marie-Celeste Pessey, Children's Winner
As the contest was so close, and so many entries seemed worthy of honorable mention, we invite all contestants in to pick their own piece of library memorabilia. Thanks so much for participating!
