Poetry Walk 

April 1-30
Suitable for all ages

We’ve turned our Boardwalk into a Poetry Walk! Celebrate National Poetry Month with a stroll around the library’s prairie land, where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the grounds while taking in the splendor of the written word. Our Poetry Walk features poems that range from classic to modern and will inspire you to create some art of your own!
