Greenville Library Hosts K-12 Poetry Contest

The Greenville Public Library is combining National Poetry Month with National Library Week.

Students in grades kindergarten through 12th are invited to write an original poem using the theme libraries. The poem can be about anything associated with libraries.

Library Director Jo Keillor told WGEL participants can find details on poetry requirements on the library website and submissions must be turned in by Saturday, April 10. There will be prizes for each of the three age group winners. Poems will be judged by a library employee who has had poetry published numerous times. You can email original poem entries to or put them in the library’s drop box.
