April is National Poetry Month. Stop by the Library and pick up a poem to carry with you. Poem in your Pocket day is Thursday, April 24, but we are offering you poems every day of the month! Feeling creative? Write your own masterpiece using magnetic poetry. Stop by our display of books from poets of the Harlem Renaissance and World Poetry and check out something you may have never before read. If you would like some suggestions on poetry to read, ask one of our reference librarians! There are many volumes in the Library. If you feel inspired to write, April's challenge is to write a poem for each day. What is your favorite poem? What titles would you like to see in our Library?
