Here's a fun way to celebrate National Poetry Month in April — create some Book Spine Poetry.
Use books from your library's collection or book sale to make a cento (a literary work made up of parts from other works) by stacking them up and reading the spines as a poem. Consider making a display, and inviting your library's patrons to create poems too!
Just create your own book spine poem, snap a picture, and email it by April 1st to be part of the Book Spine Poetry Gallery.
Sometimes when you upload a photo to your library's Facebook page, it ends up cattywumpus, sideways, or even upside down. This usually happens because the camera or phone was turned in order to take a vertical shot, as opposed to a horizontal one.
Good news — you don’t have to settle for that; here's how to fix it.
Sure we love classic novels. But so many are missing an important feature — cats!
So the folks at AbeBooks stepped in with their "Put a Cat On It!" campaign, and created titles (complete with cover art) like...
Lord of the Fleas
A Tale of Two Kitties
Bonus: BookRiot suggests titles to read to a cat. :-) Similar to libraries' Paws to Read programs where kids read to dogs, the Animal Rescue League of Berks County’s “Book Buddies” program invites children in grades 1-8 to read to shelter cats.
