April is National Poetry Month and we are inviting all teens in Ouachita Parish to create their own book spine poetry. Find at least three books, stack them up, and arrange them so the titles form a short poem when you read the book spines. Feel free to use children’s books, graphic novels, nonfiction, or any other type of book you can think of!

Email a picture of your poem to aestep@oplib.org by April 30, 2023, in order to be entered into the contest. All photos will be posted to our Facebook so the public can vote for their favorite poem and the winner will receive a prize pack. Must be 12-18 years old to enter.
