National Poetry Month, held every April, celebrates poetry and we hope you’ll participate with one of the activities listed below, or by reading, writing, or listening to some poetry.

Everyone Can Be a Poet

Through April, join the fun with our second floor displays. Book Spine Poetry is an easy way for anyone to create poetry by rearranging books, so the titles on the spines become the lines of a poem. No writing required! With Altered Page Poems/Blackout Poetry you can discover the wonder of found poetry by highlighting text on discarded book pages. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Celebrate National Poetry Month at the Goffstown Public Library
  • Kids, April 17 – Poetry Palooza event at 4pm. Registration Required.
  • Adults & Teens, April 24 – Poem in your Pocket Day. No registration required.
