National Poetry Month

What are you doing for Poetry Month?

  • Try this fun project that Marge and I did: book spine poetry.
  • Put a poem in a pocket: make some paper pockets to hang around the library and tuck poems inside.
  • Enjoy riddles in your rhymes? Print out some Hink Pinks to display.
  • Check out the Favorite Poem Project. If you have a handheld video camera, make your own project and put it on your library's website!

Be sure to leave a comment with the programs you're going to try!

We cut out words from magazines, and let the teens throughout April create poetry out of the magazine clippings. We had 7 teens participate. It was a walk-in activity that remained in the YA area for the month.

What cool ideas! I'll have to pass them on to our programming coordinator.
