April is Poetry Month! Got one in your pocket?

April, poetry and libraries go together, and the Glendale Central Library is celebrating National Library Week (April 11-17) along with National Poetry Month.

This year’s Poetry Month theme is “Put a poem in your pocket,” creating the image of making a favorite poem as familiar and personal as the things we keep in our pockets – things that form part of our everyday lives. The Central Library’s display case develops the dual themes of favorite poem collections and pockets full of poetry.

In addition, library users are encouraged to submit copies of their favorite poems, many of which will be displayed in the display’s fanciful poetry pockets. Drop one in the basket next to the display in the Central Library.
-- John, Reference Librarian
