Celebrating Poetry Month for Teens and Adults

April is here again, which means it’s also National Poetry Month- National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. Since then, it has become one of the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture. For the first half of this month I’ll be recommending some classic and maybe some not so well known poetry books for all ages. This week I’ll be focusing on the older crowd-eight for teens and eight for adults.

Celebrate National Library Week

April 7 marks the beginning of National Library Week this year. This is an annual event that helps recognize the impact libraries have on communities and individuals. There are lots of ways for you to recognize this event and learn a little bit more about the library while you’re at it. Here are some of the ways that you can celebrate having such a great library (no need for false modesty) in the community:

Passionate About Poetry

Come celebrate the 'language of love' with a special story time this Satruday, April 6th @ 2pm and explore the world of rhythm and rhyme. Family program appropriate for children of all ages. Meet in the Children's area. Stories read by Miss of Alivia of the L.O.L. Youth Book Club.

If you have any questions, please call us at 832-927-7800.

April Book Clubs at Northwest Branch Library

Good news readers, there are several book clubs that meet regularly at the Northwest Branch Library. Did you know that there are several benefits associated with actively attending a book club? Book clubs have been known to decrease stress and are good for those customers who are of retirement age. Book Clubs can help participants gain new perspective on an issue, make new friends and to hopefully become more involved in their community. Also, if you're an aspiring writer, regular book club participation can help improve or expand your own writing skills. Perhaps the best reason to particpiate in an active book club is that it can give a reader the push they need to finish that book.

Did you know about Atascocita Book Clubs?

There are a few book clubs at Atascocita for children through adults!

The Atascocita Library Lunch 'n' Lit Book Club - This club is for readers 18 and over. Join us as we discuss a good book and feel free to bring your lunch! Each month we have a new book. We meet on the second Thursday of the month at 1 PM.

TEEN Book Club- This book club is for teens 12-18. They meet on the second Thursday of the month at 4:30 PM. We have a different theme every month so you can read what YOU want! Come to meet new people, have a snack, win a prize, make a craft, find something new to read, and share what you have read lately.

Children's Book Club is called The Book Habit. Each month they will do a fun activity relating to the selected book and enjoy a snack. This program is for children 8-12 years of age and registration is required each month.
