Kids Get Behind Poetry Curtains

School children from each of our library communities got behind the making of our fantastic “Poetry Curtains” to celebrate Montana Poetry Day on 27th July. Children were asked to contribute their poetry to hang on the curtains and some attended sessions to read their poems.

The curtains will hang in the libraries until the end of August.
