Poetry events scheduled for kids
Two events have been scheduled at the library to celebrate Young People's Poetry Week, which runs from April 10 to 14.
On Wednesday, April 12, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., poet and Jamestown Press reporter Donna Drago will lead a poetry workshop for students in grades 5 to 8. The many forms of poetry will be discussed, and young poets will have a chance to write a verse or two in a form of their choice. Everyone will get a chance to read their work and get feedback from the group. Beginning April 1, visit or call the library at 423-7280 to register for workshop.
On Thursday, April 13, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., children ages 5 and up can join a workshop on creating a picture to accompany a favorite poem. All materials will be supplied. Participants can come to the library in advance of the workshop to find a favorite poem to illustrate. Adults may accompany the artists. The illustrated poems will be displayed in the children's room for the month of April.
