April Means National Poetry Month!

Most people think of April as the month when the cold, blustery, snowy days of winter lapse into warm, sunny spring.  I’m as ready as anyone else for a little vitamin D, but to me April also means something else.  April is National Poetry Month!

National Poetry Month is a huge celebration of poems and poets and there’s no better way to kick things off than by writing a little poetry yourself!

The library has lots of resources to help you get started.  From books of poetry to books on how to write poetry, check out these titles.
