Flash Mob

The term flash mob is defined as a group of people mobilized by social media to meet in a public place for the purpose of doing an unusual or entertaining activity of short duration.

How about a library flash mob?! Check one out at the link below. The participants were library and book enthusiasts consisting of teens and library staff. The teens froze for one whole minute randomly in the library. One whole minute is a long time! Then there was music, dancing, and a poem:

Read, read, read a book.
Travel anywhere.
Worldwide, you decide.
A book will take you there.

Read, read, read a book.
From beginning to the end.
What a gift to give yourself.
A book a special friend.

This flash mob may meet again someday in the near future. But the poem is too short. They need a longer poem. If you would like to add a verse, please comment. Who knows, it may be used in a library flash mob near you.

Three cheers to the brave and daring flash mob participants - you are awesome!
