April is National Poetry Month
Thirty days of celebrating the joy, expressiveness, and pure delight of poetry.
Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters.
Adult craft kit
While supplies last, monthly craft kits for adults age 18+ are available during curbside pick-up hours on Fridays and Saturdays from 12–4 pm at all four branches. During the month of April, adults can make decoupage eggs.
Craft kits for adults are made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Josephine County Cultural Coalition.
