April is National Poetry Month
Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds us that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, publishers, families, and, of course, poets, marking poetry's important place in our lives. Please join Yarmouth Town Libraries in celebration of National Poetry Month. There are many ways to bring poetry into your day, here are a few to try.
- Check out some poetry books.
- Read a favorite poem out loud to someone.
- Write a poem about an animal.
- Write a poem about your feelings.
- Learn about different types of poems.
