A month to celebrate

April is National Poetry Month, a month-long celebration designed to increase the visibility of poetry and poets in our culture. Be sure to express yourself through poetry this month– whether you pen a limerick or a four-line rhyme, or absorb yourself in someone else’s writings. The library has many poetry books to enjoy– whether it’s from the children’s section, or everybody’s favorite from non-fiction, “The Best Loved Poems of the American People,” or a collection of Elizabeth Barrett Browning sonnets. Check out a poetry book this month.

March prize winner

Congratulations to Kathy Cariens for winning the adult reading program drawing. The monthly prize is provided by Friends of the Library. One entry is allowed for every book read by adults, 18 years and older. Be sure to enter your name in the drawing at the circulation desk.
