Neighborhood Library

National Poetry Month

Celebrate poetry with Northeast Neighborhood Library!

Poetry is as old as spoken language itself, and its many forms are as diverse as its practitioners throughout history. Even today, there are tens of thousands of working, published poets in the United States alone, not to mention the many thousands more who simply write for the pleasure of creating works of art with no intention to publish.
