Happy Valentines Day!

If you need that special touch of poetry for your Valentine or any other occasion, we can help with our Columbia Granger's World of Poetry.

The Columbia Granger’s World of Poetry contains 250,000 poems in full text and 450,000 citations, numbers that will continually expand with each update. The poems in full text are the most widely-read in the English language, as well as in Spanish, French, German, and Italian. Included also is poetry in Portuguese, Polish, Yiddish, Welsh, Gaelic, and other Celtic languages, as well as poems in the ancient languages: Anglo-Saxon, Provencal and Latin. Scholars in each of these languages have reviewed and guided the selection of poems, so that the poetry on Granger’s is also the poetry encountered in the classroom.

This online poetry resource is free 24/7 to our patrons with cards in good standing. Columbia Granger's World of Poetry has everything you'd want in poetry. There are even fun bonuses such as the Listening Room where you can hear the poems read to you.
