April is National Poetry Month

“National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.  Organized by the Academy of American Poets, it serves as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States. The Academy's website serves as a hub for information about local poetry events during the month, and we would like to match their goodwill by celebrating our poetry collection at the library.” ~
