Poem in Your Pocket Day is April 30 this year, and we're looking for short poems written by local poets! These poems will be featured on cards we'll give away to the community, so join us if you'd like to get your poetry into Ithaca's pockets. For more details, see the poetry submission page.
Adult Summer Reading will begin again soon, so keep an eye on this space for more information.
TCPL's 2019 Community Read pick was The Prince of Los Cocuyos by Rochard Blanco. Check back later this year for the 2020 Community Read.
