    On the opening of Yate's New Library

    Performance poet John Hegley penned this special poem to mark the re-opening of Yate Library on 27th January 2010, after its £1.5 million refurbishment: Yate Library - John Hegley poem

    It has been a bit of a wait
    but now we can all celebrate
    it's open
    it's official
    and there's many a fine dish'll
    come out of the recipes
    in the books on the precipes
    of the shelves of the library
    in Yate.
    Let's reiterate
    it's OPEN
    the Library
    in Yate
