Poetry Month Shelves

In celebration of Poetry Month, please explore the links below to view novels in verse, books of poetry, poetry magazines, audiobooks, learn about poets, and watch poets perform!

Some of these require a library card (which you can get HERE if you don't have one) or you to login through Classlink.

Our 2022 Poetry Festival was a tremendous success! Wayne Valley Library Media Specialist Erica Foster and Wayne Hills Library Media Specialist Kristen Caldwell created and oversaw the events.

Over the course of two days, over 200 students visited the Wayne Hills library to participate in several poetry writing and reading stations, learn about poetry, and embrace its uniqueness.

Students were given the opportunity to work on imitation poems, blackout poems, acrostic poems, concrete "word bubble" poems, read poetry books and novels-in-verse, flip through The Lantern (our school literary and art magazine), and play a "Hip Hop Lyrics or Classical Poetry?" game. Students were encouraged to submit their work to The Lantern, and share it with their friends and teachers.
