By: Ann Lehue, MSIS, Manager, Collection Development Programs
National Poetry Month offers time for us to turn our attention to this oft-maligned section in libraries. Poetry does not have to be inaccessible and boring or difficult to read. In fact, poems sprang up as a simple way to pass along stories from generation to generation. The rhythm, the rhyme (in some cases), the alliteration, and other literary devices, along with the conciseness and repetition of poetry, made it enjoyable, memorable, and understandable for community members of all ages and abilities.
