April is National Poetry Month

To celebrate great poets and a chance to express your own inner poet, drop in for a selection of poetry related activities in the library’s new Teen Space on Thursdays at 3:00 pm. You don’t need to register. All activities are free and are open to students in middle school and high school. This is also a great opportunity for home-schooled tweens and teens. Presented by Kendra Mase.
