Spring Poetry Contest for Kids

April is National Poetry Month
Children in grades K-5 can enter our Spring Poetry Contest. Write anything you like about what spring means to you.

Submissions can be given to any of the three library locations. There will be three categories: grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5. A $15.00 Mitzi’s gift card will be given to a winner from each of the grade levels.

Poems need to be no more than 20 lines. The last day to turn them in will be April 30 and the winners will be announced the first week of May. Poet and author Rose Klix will judge the entries.


Read with Rhett!

Join us to create some fun crafts!
