April is National Poetry Month! On Tuesday night, 55 people attended our annual Poetry Fest, where 19 honored poets read their poems. They each received a pencil, certificate, and paperback book. Then we enjoyed a cookie reception! Check out all the fun on our Flickr page.

You can host your own Poetry Fest by sharing personal poetry or by reading someone else's. Check out the 811's in Non-Fiction for poetry inspiration. We can't wait to see you at the library!

Drop Everything And Read is a yearly event celebrated on Beverly Cleary's birthday. We put together a special storytime session to celebrate! We didn't have enough time to read a beloved Beverly Cleary book, so we read some of our other favorite authors including Mo Willems and Jan Thomas.
