Celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day with TCPL on April 18th! This year, we received over 50 poems from local poets, all centered on the theme of adventure, and we will be handing out pocket-sized poetry cards at the library and on the Commons. You can also find our poetry cards available at local businesses, organizations, and bookstores, and they will be shared online on Facebook and Instagram. Check out this year's poetry collection here!

We are also hosting a virtual Spring Writes poetry event, the Poetry and Prose Open Mic, on May 2nd. Visit that page for more details and to register.

If you have questions, please email poetry@tcpl.org.
