Did you know that April is National Poetry Month?
Stop by any of the four Redwood City libraries to pick up your favorite collection of poems or find yourself lost in the stanzas of your favorite poet.
The Academy of American Poets first declared April National Poetry Month in 1996 in order to honor poetry and the impact it has on American culture, education and economy.
They aimed to make poetry an integral part of American life and education. The board requested that schools implement appropriate poetry lessons in commemoration of the month.
