April Is National Poetry Month

April is the month when our region awakens from winter, and the buds appear, and the sunshine at last breaks through the clouds, so it is fitting that April is dedicated to poetry, in all its evocative explorations of life. There is truly a poem for everyone. Be sure to check out some of these wonderful new poetry collections at the library this month.
