National Poetry Month in the Teen Space

Blackout Poetry, Magnetic Poetry, and More!

April is National Poetry Month, and it's time for you to unleash your inner poet in the Teen Space. We'll have Magnetic Poetry for you to play with (take a picture with your phone to save your brilliant work!) and a Blackout Poetry craft where you put together a poem on a page from an old book.

You can share your work on our poetry board or take it home to keep.

See the librarians at the Info Desk for supplies and book recommendations. We'll also be hosting events featuring the history and practice of poetry in our neighborhood on Thursday, April 3 and Saturday, April 19, as well as Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 24.
