The Rice Aron Library is celebrating this month with a display of some of the wonderful poetry books in our collection. Come by and check it out to discover some of the treasures of our poetry collection! As always, feel free to check out any of the books on display, or peruse the stacks to find more.
There are also numerous ways to participate in NPM:
Here in the library we will be hosting a Magnetic Poetry Contest, open 24/7 for submissions. We’ve set a up a magnet board with plenty of words to help you create poetic masterpieces on the ground floor of the Library, next to the poetry display. Come by anytime and compose a poem! If you wish to submit a poem to the contest, take a picture of it and email it to email@example.com with your name and contact information. We will remove your contact info before we post your photo.
We’ll highlight some of our favorites on our Facebook page, and one lucky poet will win a gift certificate to the Potash Grill! The winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries at the end of the month.
Join people across the country who will be selecting a poem to carry around their pocket and share with others throughout the day.
