April is National Poetry Month and in celebration, we’re hosting several teen poetry programs here at the Central Library throughout vacation week. Yesterday’s workshop was called “Poetry In Hand” and incorporated Black Out poetry, Found poetry, and Magnetic Poetry.
The poem below was written by Anonymous at the Central Branch yesterday using Magnetic Poetry:
ONLY THIS LOVE
HEALS YOU AND I
IN OUR SLEEP
WE SHARE OUR PLEASURE
FLYING INTO A NIGHT SKY
THROUGH A TRANSITION
WE COME BACK
YOU AND I LINGER
THEN LET YOU AND I

Here at the Boston Public Library we’re celebrating National Library Week. And one of the ways that we’re celebrating is by creating a page on our website dedicated to you and the joyious stories you would like to share about your experiences in the library. We would love for teens to talk about the branches they attend, the librarians they talk to on a daily basis, and the programming they couldn’t live without. Whatever it is about the library that you love… TELL US ABOUT IT!
Check out the webpage here: http://www.bpl.org/stories/ Read what others have to say, and share your own thoughts.
On Thursday of this week, we’ll be celebrating National Library Week with Library Snap Shot Day. This means we’ll be taking photos of the programs and the fun going on in the library that day to complete “a day at the library”. Show up that day and participate in the Video Games at the Copley branch and you could find yourself on our website! Yes, you could be famous just for using the library, and what could be better than that?
