Read Outside the Box: Poetry

lifestudiesFrom informal chats at the circulation desk, it seems the poetry challenge is the one many of you are procrastinating on. I get it. Poetry can be overwhelming, but it is a rich and wonderful form of writing that we would like you to dip your toes into. There will always be poetry books in our summer reading display for you to choose from BUT I would encourage you to do some exploring on your own. Go up to the Emslie room and browse through our recently moved poetry collection. Choose a slim volume (after all, you only have a few weeks left to finish your challenge card), one that speaks to you and take a few moments to sit in the quiet space in a nice, comfortable chair and get ready to fall in love with verse.
