Upcoming Library Events and Activities
Poetry Readings

In order to bring poetry off the page and to an audience, Kresge Library began holding monthly poetry readings (generally, the first Thursday of each month) in our Student Lounge. These events are a relaxed and informal setting where people can read poems they have written, or those by other authors, or just sit back and enjoy the experience of listening.  Check out the Poetry @ Kresge Facebook page and join us at our next poetry event! Also, check out our next Poetry Slam, to be held Thursday, November 13, at 7:00 PM, on the 4th Floor.
