Program Description

Event Details

April is National Poetry Month. Join us virtually to create black out poetry, a fun and easy way to make poetry and art, and upcycle old book pages.

With blackout poetry, you take an already existing page of text and cross out all the words you don’t want to keep in your poem. You can cross them out with straight lines, squiggles, or anything you like to create a unique mix between poetry and art.

Kits with all needed supplies will be available to pick up in the library during open hours starting Monday, April 5.

A package of markers arranged with two different sized stacks of book pages, one large and the other smaller.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
