April is poetry month

Come celebrate with the library

Have something to say?

Bring your poetry to read at our POETRY SLAM

April 25 from 5-7 p.m. at the Hornell Public Library

Coffee and snacks will be provided

Try blackout poetry

Throughout the month of April we will have a blackout poetry station in the young adult section for teens to make their own blackout poetry. They can also have it displayed at the library.

How it works: Love poetry, but can’t find the words? No worries. With black out poetry, the words are already there, you just need to black out the rest.

Choose either pages from a newspaper or book that has been cut out that might have something for you to say.

Choose the words you want to keep, and black out everything else
