Playing with Poetry
Exciting times in the library! Not only are we running a Sticker Design contest (see below) but we are also featuring a poetry competition!
Thursday October 6th is National Poetry Day and we are celebrating all month long. Since Poetry is wordplay, the theme of this year’s campaign is Games. Why not write your own poem and enter our contest. We’re on the lookout for some poems about games- sport games, board games, word games, any old games! Post your poems in the boxes in the libraries or hand your entry in to the librarians by October 31st.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Write a Haiku poem about the experience of watching your favourite sports team
Create an acrostic poem about your favourite game
Describe how a competitor feels after winning a medal for their sport
Personify an object from a board game: how does the Monopoly car feel racing around the board, or the counters as they are forced through the Connect-4 board?
Capture the emotion of competing in a big race
The winners will have their poems displayed in the library, published on the blog and will awarded Book Vouchers!
Also as part of our celebration of poetry and games, we have board games available in both the libraries for use at lunch time. Yesterday, some of the Primary children got a first go at playing together with their friends and the librarians.
Come by the library and join in!
