Put a Poem in Your Pocket This Thursday, April 27

Every year in April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people throughout the country celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day. You can find a poem at Poems Kids Like and Children’s Poetry / Poetry Foundation. We also encourage you to visit the Gonda Family Library to choose from a large selection of poetry books. Scroll through the photos of book covers, below, to see just a few of the books in our collection. Then be sure to pick a poem you want to share and carry it in your pocket this Thursday!
