Poetry of America

Last month was National Poetry Month, so why am I writing this blog in May?  If you had a chance to visit the Atascocita Branch you may have noticed my display of poetry books in the children's area. I am happy to report that many children and adults checked these items out. Even though April is over and gone, I am hopeful that you will continue to explore books in this area of the library.
