It's called Book Spine Poetry and it ranges from the serious to the comical, but it's always interesting and fun.

Grades 6-12 are invited to create their own Book Spine Poetry during Teen Read Week, October 17-23. "Build" a poem by stacking books so the titles on the spines create a pithy poem. We'll take photos of your creations and post them on TeenThing.

Drop in and create your poem any time during the hours listed at these locations:
  • Library Center: Sunday, October 17, 1-5 p.m.; and Monday-Saturday, October 18-23, 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m.
