Book Spine Poetry

book spine poetry

National Poetry Month is coming up in April.  One program idea is to have your patrons “write” book spine poetry. Using books your library owns, patrons can use the spine titles to create unique and fun poems. They can be funny or serious and they can make sense or be totally nonsensical. The only thing that matters is that your patrons are having fun!  The following website has some examples of poems using book spines:

Does your library participate in National Poetry Month? What types of things do  you do to celebrate?
