Stack of library books with the titles Promoting individual and community health at the library, a mind at a time, The brain that changes itself, your medical mind, a whole new mind, This is what a librarian looks like.

Example of #BookSpinePoetry

Hey Region 7! In honor of National Medical Librarians Month and National Health Literacy Month, NNLM is hosting a book spine poetry contest. All participants will be entered into a lottery to receive a free copy of books selected from the NNLM Reading Club – a total of 10 books to add to your collection and share with your users!

I tried my hand at this with the stack of books from my own bookshelves:

Promoting individual and community health at the library, a mind at a time.

The brain that changes itself, your medical mind, a whole new mind.

This is what a librarian looks like. 

Give it a try!

The Rules

  1. Grab some books (at least 3).
  2. Stack them up!
  3. Arrange the titles to create a health related poem.
  4. Take a photo and share it with us!
