Oakland Public Library's Main Library celebrates National Poetry Month with two building-wide exhibits in April.
See "Poetic Steps," and experience poetry as you climb our stairs from the sidewalk to the penthouse. Nursery rhymes, classics, and Youth Poet Laureate entries -- they're all here.
We're also featuring Concrete Poetry in posters all around the building. What's Concrete Poetry? It's poetry in which the poet arranges the words of a poem into shapes that help convey the poem's meaning.
