Poem in Your Pocket Day 2009 is almost here! What is Poem in Your Pocket Day?
The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends on April 30, 2009. Poems from pockets will be unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores.
We will be celebrating in The Unquiet Library with poetry readings and free poems for everyone! Today we hung the first clothesline of poetry—check out the slideshow above. More clotheslines full of poems for your pockets are coming next week—stay tuned! Many thanks to Mr. Jason Hubbard for helping me hang the clothesline since I am vertically challenged!
The Unquiet Library celebrated National Poem In Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 17! We created “pockets” of poems throughout our media center where our patrons can go and get a poem to read for fun! We also gave each English teacher a pocket of poems for his or her classroom to help students celebrate this event of sharing poems.
You can come by the library and get poems for your pockets for the rest of the month! Please stop by the media center and browse our pockets of poems, which are a terrific mix of classic, modern, and student written poems! Several of our pocket poems were written by Creekview’s finest! :-)
