Theological Libraries Month, October 2014
Celebrate with us throughout the month by following the library on social media and
sharing your favorite things about the library with the hashtag #TLM2014.
Book Spine Poetry
As a theological library, Princeton Theological Seminary Library encourages you to be creative, think deeply and look at things in new ways. This October, why not channel a little of that creativity into turning our print collections into art? Create a book spine poem for Theological Libraries Month and share it on Twitter with the hashtag #TLM2014. Not on Twitter? Not a problem! Just email a picture of your poem to libweb[at]ptsem[dot]edu.
Here's an example of a book spine poem from books in the Karl Barth Collection:
Movements of grace
Tracking the footsteps
The mystery of God
among the crossbearers
Paths not taken
Ever against the stream
book spine poem by Nathan Maddox of the Center for Barth Studies, 2014
