Looking for a quick way to delve into the Library’s online poetry resources on this first day of National Poetry Month? The Library’s new National Poetry Month Pinterest board, which debuts today, lets you do just that.

Our initial set of pins was chosen to introduce teachers, librarians, students, and general viewers to the diverse range of poetry-related materials on our website: poems, manuscripts, photographs, blog posts, webcasts, teacher resources, Poet Laureate initiatives, and more. We will be pinning new items throughout April, so be sure to follow the board to see our latest pins.

We’ve very exited about this new way for us to share our poetry resources with you. Once you take a look at the board, let us know what you think in the comments below.

Happy pinning!
