POETRY READING & RECEPTION
SATURDAY, MAY 4

Teen poets published in this year’s A Forest of Words anthology are invited to a celebration in their honor. Poets will have the opportunity to share their poems at the reading.
Everyone is welcome to attend the event to enjoy poems read by our talented young writers, music performed by the Bellingham Youth Chamber Players, and light appetizers.
We have the newest titles from your favorite authors, series, and graphic novels from the moment they get released. Don’t know what to read? We can help you find just the right book (or 2 or 4 or 10) that fits your exact style. Want to get a suggestion? Check out these booklists and our teen book vlogs for loads of ideas. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for our monthly Teen Read On newsletter.
There’s more than just books to discover at the library. Our Library of Things is an unexpected collection of items that you can borrow. For example, there are coloring books to color in and board games for a fun night with your crew. Don’t forget about our wide selection of video games, CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks. If you’re here procrastinating on your homework, we’ve got help that’s just a click away.
