Celebrate National Poetry Month – Apr. 2 - 30

A poem gives vent to your passion.
In April, it will be the fashion
To turn a neat phrase
Any number of ways;
The point is to share your expressions.

The Broome Library invites you to celebrate National Poetry Month in April. There will be a variety of ways to flash your poetic license:

  • Write your poems at stations (you'll know 'em when you see 'em!) around the library.
  • Pick up a poem and put it in your pocket.
  • Exchange poems.
  • Make moveable poetry with word magnets.

Send pictures of your creations to for posting on the Broome Library Facebook page.

Upstairs, downstairs, you can't escape the power of poetry at the Broome Library. Limber up with limericks. Challenge friends in haiku. Spin thoughts into sonnets. Be a free radical with blank verse. Get your groove on with iambic pentameter. To rhyme or not to rhyme will not be the only brain-bending challenge.

Offering insight into different facets of America’s bullying crisis, the stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principal’s offices, this is a powerful and inspiring film that every educator, parent, teen and young adult should see. A panel discussion will follow.
