The Marshall Public Library will be highlighting the community’s poets in April.As part of the library’s celebration of National Poetry Month, the library will be putting up its annual Poetry Wall. The wall was the brainchild of Librarian Joan Juskie in 2001 and lets authors have their works publicly displayed. All poems featured on the wall become part of the library’s collection.“No matter your favorite style, we want to see what our area’s poets have to offer,” said Amy Campbell, Public Services Supervisor at the Marshall Public Library. “So whether you have a haiku about your favorite trail at City Creek or a limerick that tells a funny story about you and your friends, we want it all.”Library staff would like to encourage school-age children to participate.“Children are invited to submit an individual work or if a class would like to work together on a poem, we will definitely accept it,” Campbell said.Entries can be hand-delivered to the library or submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions can also be mailed to the Marshall Public Library c/o Amy Campbell, 113 South Garfield Avenue, Pocatello, Idaho 83201For more information on the programs and services available at the Marshall Public Library, visit marshallpl.org.
