National Poetry Month: Home

Celebrate National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month! Its goals are to:

  • highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets
  • encourage the reading of poems
  • assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms
  • increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
  • encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and 
  • encourage support for poets and poetry.

This topic guide features favorite published poems submitted or written by members of the Albright College community. Library staff will select one poem each day to send to the Employee Community Email

We hope that this will inspire the campus community to explore the wonderful world of poetry.
