The first Metro Library Teen Writing Contest winners were announced at an author reading session at The Paramount, 700. E. Sheridan. The event was part of the Downtown Literary Festival Saturday, April 16.
The earliest known lines of poetry were found on a cuneiform tablet thought to be over 4,000 years old. The first verse, “Bridegroom, dear to my heart, Goodly if your beauty honeysweet,” tells a love story common in poetry.
April is National Poetry Month and Metro Libraries are eager to showcase all the rhythm and rhapsody in celebration. Open mic poetry readings, an afternoon with poet laureates, and a dash of art mixed in make up the special events planned to celebrate Poetry Month.
We grow smarter communities, one person at a time.
The Northwest Library, part of the Metropolitan Library System, was built with sustainability in mind while not shortchanging aesthetics. Opening in 2012, this Oklahoma-prairie-themed library was selected for the Mayor’s Award in OKC Beautiful’s Distinguished Service Awards. Regional Director, Rachel Kopchick, and Executive Director of the Metropolitan Library System, Tim Rogers, will attend the award luncheon March 23 to accept this honor.
All libraries in the Metropolitan Library System will be closed Sunday, Mar. 27 in observance of Easter. Regular service hours resume Monday, Mar. 28.
