Please join the Villa Park Public Library and the Friends of the Library as we recognize National Poetry Month. We invite you to join other Villa Park residents in reading their favorite poems as part of our 8th Annual Poetry Month Reading.

Robert Frost said, “A poem begins with a lump in the throat . . . It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”
We invite you to choose a poem that speaks to you. You may choose a poem you have written or one that someone else has written. It might be inspirational, funny, thought-provoking, memory-producing or even lovely to listen to. What matters is that it appeals to you and you want to share it. This is a family-friendly event for all ages.
Celebrate life and poetry with friends and neighbors at this unique event. Some refreshments will be served, and additional refreshments will be available for purchase. Please contact the Villa Park Public Library Check-Out Desk at (630) 834-1164, ext. 5, for more details, or register online at EventBrite.
And please share this event flyer with anyone you think would be interested in attending. We hope to see you there!
