April is National Poetry Month!


April marks one of our favorite times of year – it’s National Poetry Month!

A selection of poetry books will be highlighted behind the Reference Desk in honor of this month. Please feel free to browse through them and check out any that catch your eye.

Poetry often gets a bad rap as being hard to understand or not fun to read… that couldn’t be further from the truth. See what’s out there – you might surprise yourself and find a poet you just can’t get enough of.

And poetry isn’t just limited to the written word. Spoken word poetry is moving, engaging, inspiring, entertaining… you name it. Below please check out Neil Hilborn and his poem “OCD.” Happy National Poetry Month!
