April: National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. And, April 14th 2011 is Poem in Your Pocket Day. To get into the mood stop by the library and check out  Carol’s poetry month display on the bulletin board (opposite the reference desk). There’s also a brochure for you to take home.

For those of you with iPhones, iPads and iPod touches you might like to try the  Poem Flow app. Finally, don’t forget that the call number for the children’s poetry collection is J 811 – it’s just such a great place to browse – enjoy!
