Our Ames Public Library's a treasure
Its programs and services bring pleasure
The staff is first-rate
Books are up-to-date
Ames folks are lucky beyond measure.
Alas there are needs to address
Energy is wasted, we confess
Book space decreases
How do we plan for future success?
In your hand is APL's fate
On election day-November 8
Our motive you may guess
We hope you will vote yes
Renewing our library can't wait.
