Library Features Book Display for National Poetry Month 2011

The UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library is featuring a book display in the third floor in observance of National Library Month. "Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture" (from the Academy of American Poets website, where you can learn more, find poems, get book suggestions, and ways to celebrate poetry as well). The library is featuring the following books in our display throughout the month of April. All books are usually located in the General Collection (third floor stacks) unless noted otherwise. Please note that all books in the case are available to be checked out. Simply stop by the Circulation Desk, and we will be happy to open the case so you can read the book. No need to worry about leaving an empty space in the case; we have more books we can put in. In addition, if you need ideas or help finding a particular book or author, you can stop at the Reference Desk. We'll be happy to help you find what you need. The book list:
