National Poetry Month and Contest

Have you been in the library lately?  If so, you may have noticed colorful 81/2x11 sheets of paper adorning the walls of the 2nd floor.  It is our 2nd annual Poetry Scavenger Hunt funded by the Friends of the Library. 

This two part scavenger hunt asks children to find 24 poems scattered throughout the floor, followed by finding 12 poems specifically about subjects listed on the scavenger hunt list.  After finishing the first part, children are given a pen (with which to write their own poems) made out of 100% biodegradable materials, and they are given a matching notebook (with which to write their own poems) after finishing the second part.

Bring your kids in to participate today, and while you are here, check out the great poetry books we have in our poetry corner (you know... near the Poet Tree...).  They have all month to finish, so if they don't finish while you are here, come back anytime before the end of the month to find all of the poems!
