What: Poetry Egg Hunt
When:  April 15-19, 2019
Where:  Burling Library

Please join the Grinnell College Libraries in celebrating National Poetry Month with a Poetry Egg Hunt during the week of April 15-19 in Burling Library.

Over 100 eggs filled with a poem and a treat will be hidden around Burling Library and patrons are free to open the eggs and share their poems with others.

We ask two things:

  • Please return the eggs to one of the baskets located at the Burling circulation desk
  • Please limit two eggs per person per day to give everyone a chance to have a fun experience of finding and reading a good poem
