2001 Texas Reading Club: To the Library and Beyond!

2001 Texas Reading Club Theme Song

When We Read Overture:


The Future and Beyond--2001

By Sally Meyers


Tom Green County Library


(Sing to the tune of The William Tell Overture by Rossini)

When we read, we explore through all space and time.


We unlock ev'ry corner of our minds.


We will find new adventures of many kinds;


Go to places that are hard to find.

MEXICO, KOKOMO, SAN ANTONIO


BALTIMORE, BUFFALO, AND OHIO


JACKSONVILLE, WICHITA, MINNEAPOLIS


SACRAMENTO, WASHINGTON D.C.

Cyberspace, human race, surf the Internet


Go see what you would like to be.


Read a book, take a look, and we'll surely see,


The Future and Beyond!

PHYSICIST, ASTRONAUT, OR DENTIST


MUSICIAN, BIOLOGIST.


JOURNALIST, TEACHER, AIRPLANE PILOT,


TRUCK DRIVER, ARTIST.

When we read we explore through all space and time


We unlock ev'ry corner of our minds


And we find new adventures of many kinds.


Meet new faces that are fun to find.

BREMEN BAND, NEVERLAND, AND A DOG NAMED HANK,


CHARLOTTE'S WEB, MADELINE, AND THE BFG!


SEUSS'S CAT, WILBUR'S RAT, AND BUNNICULA!


MEET NEW FRIENDS, AND READ A BOOK WITH ME!
