Megan's picture

April is National Poetry Month! Celebrate by reading poetry, or try your hand at writing some of your own with exercises from the Teen Poetry Wiki. Learn about Ohio poets, listen to poetry online, or if poetry baffles you, look up a poet or a poem in one of our databases:

We have many poetry collections in print, but they can’t be put on hold for the next few days as we upgrade to a new catalog system. Drop by and check out Dewey Decimal 811 on our shelves to find a great deal of poetry, and ask a librarian for help to find more - be sure to bring your library card from April 4th - 8th if you want to take materials home!
