Julian Aiken, a reference and technology librarian, recently introduced "Poetry in the Lavatory." Every few days, he changes the poems mounted above the urinal and on the stall walls in the men's room and on the stall walls in the women's room of the library's public restrooms.
He changes the women's room poems early in the morning or has a female librarian do it for him.
"Poetry is something the whole library staff is interested in," Aiken said. "We really want people to read poetry and get interested in it. It gets people thinking about poetry while they're in there doing something else."
