Our theme for the library this year is What a Wonderful World, and to that end, we’re focusing on seeing the wonder in our world. Usually, every month at the desk, we have an article available for patrons to read and discuss with Julie, our library director, but this year, we’re handing out poems instead. Our trusty library goose is also helping us pen a monthly column that focuses on some of the gems in our poetry collection.
For December, our poem is Barbara Crooker’s “Ode to Chocolate.” We’ve been sharing poems this year to highlight our poetry collection, and we want to encourage you to continue to check out our poetry resources in the library system. If you need some regular poetry in your life, definitely check out the digital poem of the day from Poetry Foundation and/or Poets.org.
I want to wrap up the year by thanking all of you for reading and following the blog and providing a teaser of our plans for next year. They involve food. 😀Continue reading “Penelope’s Poetry Parlor: December (and a Sneak Peek for Next Year!)”
