Program Description

Event Details

Celebrate National Poetry Month in April by testing your creativity with blackout poetry!

Blackout poetry is a form of poetry where you use book pages or newspaper articles and redact words until what is left creates a poem.

Drop-in at any time at our library branches this month to find our blackout poetry stations. All supplies are provided. 



Individuals with disabilities who require accommodation to attend a program at any KCPL facility should contact the ADA Coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the event. Phone: 304-343-4646 ext. 1242 or 1268 Email:

Main Library Patrons with strollers, wheelchairs, or other wheeled devices will find it easier to use the Jacobson Tower entrance on Quarrier Street or the Skybridge entrance via Summers Street Garage.
