We choose materials for our collections that reflect the diversity and multiple interests in our community. We can loan you magazines, movies, books and music, educational games, puzzles and more.

We encourage natural curiosity and the love of lifelong learning.

National Poetry Month

Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, families, and, of course, poets, marking poetry’s important place in our lives.

Please join Yarmouth Town Libraries in the celebration of National Poetry Month. There are many ways to bring poetry into your day, here are a few you can try.

  • Check out some poetry books.
  • Choose a favorite poem and read it out loud to someone.
  • Write a poem about an animal.
  • Write a poem about your feelings.
  • Learn about different types of poems.

Please submit your original or favorite poem via email to Ms. Connie, and we may post it on the Library’s social media.
