The library is closed temporarily but we are doing some great things online!
A Note From Our Executive Director
In support of efforts to diminish the spread of COVID-19, Poets House is postponing all public programs scheduled throughout the rest of March. For only the second time in 32 years the library is temporarily closed, until further notice. I send deep wishes for your well-being. Poets House is with you, in solidarity. We are anxious, along with you—but we are also inspired by examples of community, caring and responsibility. We are inspired by poetry itself, as it helps us find a voice even in extremity. Although we have had to close the library and postpone programs in an effort to safeguard staff and constituents, we are trying to find new and creative ways to connect with our community and support the poetic voice that is deep within us.
