Our April 3rd floor Display celebrated Poetry Month!
Every April our country pays tribute to poetry's "... vital place in American culture." National Poetry Month was

This year Library Technician Lisa Franson mounted a Library display to
celebrate poetry and poets. This tribute to the 'complex poetic heritage'
was located on the 3rd floor.
