Celebrate with Poetry!


This April is a time to CELEBRATE! This month marks the inauguration of Wheelock’s President David Chard as well as National Poetry Month! In honor of these two exciting occasions, the library has set up two poetry activities!

Get in touch with your creative side and partake in our Poet-Tree activity. Create your own blackout poem on leaves cut from old book pages, and then add them to the Poet-Tree for all to see! Below are photos of just how quickly the tree has grown!

Our Spine Poetry station challenges students to create poems out of found words on book spines. Us librarians have pulled a cart of books for you to start with, but if you’re looking for inspiration feel free to browse the shelves and grab any other words that jump out at you. Below are some of our favorite creations so far!

There’s still plenty of time to stop by the library and add to the Poet-Tree or Spine Poems. These activities will be up through the end of the semester! Be sure to share your works with the Wheelock community by posting them online! #WheeRead #WheelockCollege
