National Poetry Month began in 1996 when the Academy of American Poets wanted to raise awareness and celebrate the past and present of poetry in the United States. Now it takes place every April, and this year at MLK we’re celebrating the diversity of American poets writing right now.
We had a ton of fun at our kids' karaoke event at the MLK Library on April 13, though you don't have to wait for a library event to break out into song. Why not have a family karaoke night at home? It's simple to plan, fun for all ages, and doesn't have to break the bank.

Beginning in 1937, the ALA (American Library Association) began awarding the prestigious Caldecott medal to the illustrator of America's "most distinguished picture book for children." The medal gets its name from Randolph Caldecott, an influential 19th century English illustrator.
