National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month!

Portland Public Library has organized a month-long lineup of engaging poetry readings and panel discussions for National Poetry Month. Join the celebration by attending one of these events and be inspired to celebrate poetry all year long!

Visit any of our PPL branch locations throughout the month of April and pick up a “Poem for your Pocket” to enjoy and share with a friend.
