…Encino’s Poet-tree grew!

Last month, we showed you the beginnings of our poet-tree for National Poetry Month at the Encino Branch Library. After getting it planted right in the front of our library, we gave it a few days to settle…and then…poetry started growing from the branches!

The tree first started to grow when we sat around and wrote down some poetry (both original and our favorite poems), and then attached our poetry to the branches.

Then, we invited the kids and tweens at Encino to also write some of their own poetry during their programs to add on the the tree! After all of that, we finally let the rest of the community (including adults!) to get in on the fun and contribute to our tree’s growth.

And by the end of the month, the poet-tree was full of poetry!!

Now that National Poetry Month is over, we had to chop down the tree…but stick around for the summer and see what else might grow up in our library! 🙂
