Before we relied on the internet to answer our odd questions, many people turned to librarians for much more than reference information. They asked all sorts of things. For example: “What does it mean when you dream you’re being chased by an elephant?” Or: “Can I get a book telling me how to be mistress of ceremonies at a musical orgy?” The New York Public Library’s Instagram profile now shares photos of these handwritten questions using the hashtag #letmelibrarianthatforyou, and other libraries have joined them.
Prompt: Write a poem using #letmelibrarianthatforyou questions. Please do share the results in the comments section or submit to an upcoming issue.
