National Poetry Month 2010: Library Features Book Display

We continue our celebration of National Poetry Month in April. As part of the celebration, the library is featuring two book displays of poetry selections. Our main display is on the third floor. We have a small display highlighting the words of Billy Collins,  who is the 2001 U.S. Poet Laureate. As always, any book inside the display cases is available for checkout. Just stop at the Circulation Desk and request the book you desire. Additionally, if you return to check our display upstairs, we are featuring a different poem as a highlight feature every week.
