Writing for Kids at the Library

In addition to reading, the library is a great place to practice your writing skills. And April is a great month to do it, since it is National Poetry Month! All month long, we will have a variety of poetry activities for you in the children’s department, including magnetic poetry and a poetry gumball machine. Flex those poetry muscles all during the month of April!

Did you also know that we have both a Kids and Teen Writing Club? On alternating Wednesdays through the month of May, get the chance to practice different writing skills with fellow kids and teens.

If you’re looking for some books that will help you hone those writing skills, both poetry and otherwise, check out the books below! There’s something for every stage and level of writing.
