Program Description

Event Details

April is National Poetry Month, and we're celebrating with blackout poetry! Blackout poetry is a style of poetry where the poet uses something that is already written, like a book page, and blacks out everything except select words. The words left on the page create a poem or story!

Join us at Central Library to learn about, practice, and share this style of poetry! We'll provide all the supplies you'll need; just bring your creativity!

Free library parking is available in Central's underground parking garage for two hours per visit. Parking around the library is metered at various costs from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
