National Poetry Month: Home

National Poetry Month


April is National Poetry Month! This celebration was launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996 to highlight the cultural impact of poetry and poets in our society. The month-long celebration includes special days and activities including Poem in Your Pocket Day and the 2021 Dear Poet Project.

This virtual display showcases just a small portion of the library's digital collections that feature poetry and poets. To find more resources, you can use OneSearch to search across all library collections, search within a specific database or eBook collection, or check out the library's streaming media services.
