According to UNESCO,
"Poetry contributes to creative diversity, by questioning anew our use of words and things, our modes of perception and understanding of the world. Through its associations, its metaphors and its own grammar, poetic language is thus conceivably another facet of the dialogue among cultures."
In addition to this little display in the lobby, we have a sizable poetry collection. Feel free to search our catalog or lose yourself into poetry upstairs among the shelves.
P.S. Don't forget - April is National Poetry Month in the U.S. and Canada!
