TOP STORY >> Library celebrates National Poetry Month

Cabot’s library is celebrating National Poetry Month with several events throughout April.

A Blackout Poetry session will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday.

Blackout poetry, also referred to as “creative deconstruction,” involves taking an article or copy of any piece of print material and blacking out the words you don’t want to create your own poem with the words left over. This activity is intended for pre-teens through adults.

April 24 is Poem in Your Pocket Day, a part of National Poetry Month, everyone is invited to stop by during library hours, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., to visit our Poem in Your Pocket stations.

Station one will feature material and instructions to create your own origami pocket.

Station two will feature our poetry exchange, where people can pick out a poem for their pocket and also leave a poem in exchange if they would like. This event is for all ages.

Other ways to participate in National Poetry Month include simply checking out one of our many poetry books or sharing your favorite poem with us on our Facebook page, Cabot Public Library.
