[ARCHIVED] Nation Poetry Month at the KGI Online Library

The original item was published from April 2, 2020 10:47 AM to April 2, 2020 10:47 AM

April is National Poetry Month!

To celebrate this I thought about composing a sonnet for this Blog to laud the workings of libraries across our state. But I don't have the wit of Shakespeare. Nor do I want to struggle through the rigid construction of a sonnet again. (Did it once) Also I have a feeling that I'd lose most of you before you got to the KGI links below!
