Vanquisher of Barriers (or, The Librarian)

With diligence, she navigates
all disciplines and histories,
resolving questions, facts, and dates
with great devotion, patience, ease.

You never doubt her many strengths,
for she will go to any lengths
to locate names or track a truth.
She's more than finder, filer, sleuth.

With books and more, she gathers forces
- entire aisles of resources -
empowering communities
with endless opportunities.

She advocates with every mile
and always wears a friendly smile
while smashing barriers each day
and guarding freedoms on her way.
