O. Henry's At-Home Library Newsletter (Week of April 13th)

Library News update

It's Poetry Month!

There's not a better way to kick off Poetry Month than with a love poem. And let's be honest, I know some of you are missing your loved ones and crushes from school. Here are a couple of resources you can use to create love poems to send off:


1. Download Poet Assistant on iOS or Android. This app works offline, provides a rhyming dictionary, thesaurus, a regular dictionary, and an area to create your own love poem (all with no ads).

2. Try out Word Mover (also downloadable via iOS or Android) which contains 5-word banks where users can move around the words to create poems, quotes, or riddles.


If you'd be willing to share any of your love poems created, feel free to send them to me via Blend messages or in an email. I'd love to feature them in the newsletter. I will keep them anonymous.
