April is National Poetry Month

"National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated." (Poets.org)

Celebrate National Poetry Month with us in one of 4 ways:

Borrow a book of poetry.  Find poetry books in the 811's or 821's, both upstairs and downstairs. Read poets such as Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Jack Prelutsky and Jon Scieszka.

Contribute to our Poetree. Add leaves to our Poetree by supplying the final word of a rhyme and earn a raffle ticket.

Pick-a-Poem. Select a poem from our garden of poems and get a lollipop too!

Subscribe to Poem-a-Day. Sign up to Poem-a-Day and receive a poem in your email everyday.
