  • Any style is okay.
  • Poems will be accepted between March 31 and April 28.

Also, for students in grades K-5, we are having a poetry slam on Friday, April 28 from 4:00-4:45, if you would like to come read/perform your poem at the library. We are also having one for teens in grades 6-12 on Thursday, April 27. Hope to see you there!
