April is National Poetry Month! Whether reading it or writing it, poetry is a great way for kids to learn language, empathy, gratitude and resilience. Kids of all ages are invited to write or attach their original poems on a paper leaf from the Children’s Service Desk and add it to the library's “Poet-Tree” throughout the month of April. Help us cover the branches with your creative and inspiring thoughts.
LEGOmania Design Contest winners are announced today under the Dome. View the entries from 10 a.m. to noon and stay for the awards ceremony at noon. Photos of the winning entries will be posted on Facebook and at oshkoshpubliclibrary.org.
In-person entries due: THURS | March 24 | 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. | Lower Level
