IMG_8348To celebrate National Poetry Month this April, Beloit Public Library will be hiding poems from many different poets throughout the library. They won’t be hard to find, just scattered in random places for anyone to find and enjoy.

If you find a poem, let a staff member at the front desk know, and you will be entered into a raffle to receive prizes at the end of the month! Also feel free to take and keep the poem you find. Many different poems will be displayed and continuously refreshed throughout the month of April.

Thanks to BPL’s on-staff poetry expert, Paul, for putting together this fun activity. Below is a list of all poems used in Find a Poem:
