Kids' Poetry Fun!

Kids: come celebrate National Poetry Month with our Kids Poetry Fun program, which will take place tonight at 7 p.m. Led by veteran educators and poets Rosanne Singer and Liz Rees, the focus of the program will be creating poetry about opposites. Both Rosanne and Liz know how to make creating poetry a fun and active process, filled with movement and laughter, and their previous programs have been huge hits with young participants. So please come join us for a very hands-on poetry program! Registration encouraged, but not required; to register, go to Program Registration - Takoma Park Maryland Library or call us at 301-891-7259. But feel free also to just show up for this fun program!
