Poem in Your Pocket Day 2019

You may know that April is National Poetry Month, but did you know that Thursday April 18 is “Poem in Your Pocket” Day? People are encouraged to “celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day”. I am choosing to share here a very short poem by Emily Dickinson.

To Make a Prairie

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, —

One clover, and a bee,

And revery.

The revery alone will do

If bees are few.


Pick a poem to share tomorrow – either in person or at #pocketpoem !

Inclement Weather Saturday

Due predicted weather conditions the library will be CLOSED on Saturday 1/19. Students can still swipe into 24 hour areas. A decision about opening on Sunday will be made Sunday morning.
