Iconic Poems for National Poetry Month in April

April is Poetry Month

April is Poetry Month! In honor of poetry’s place in our culture, we  recommend a wonderful article from Literary Hub, The 32 Most Iconic Poems in the English Language.

“Despite frequent (false) claims that poetry is dead and/or irrelevant and/or boring, there are plenty of poems that have sunk deep into our collective consciousness as cultural icons.” Read on for those poems, and celebrate the art of poetry in all its forms.

Looking for more adult poetry titles? Check out this list in our catalog!

April Nonfiction for Kids & Teens

Here are some of my favorite kid and teen nonfiction books that you should be reading this month! Nonfiction books are great for finding factual information to use in school projects and/or personal research. Want to know more about each of these books?  Find them all in our catalog!

11 Things I Will Never, Ever Admit to My Local Librarian

We love our friends at Brightly! They recommend great books for all ages, strategies for raising readers, and have shared a funny article about being a library parent, one that will leave you smiling and remembering your own library parent bloopers. Enjoy, and remember to visit us during National Library Week, April 7-13.
