This year, TCPL is celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day online. Join us on April 29th, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as we share poems by over 50 local poets, all centered on the theme of hope. You can also check out this year's poetry collection here!

We will also be hosting two Spring Writes poetry events this year: the Poetry and Prose Open Mic on May 5th, and Poetry and the Pandemic on May 6th. Visit those pages for more details and to register.
