Black Out Poetry

Drop in for black out poetry! Similar to a treasure hunt, you’ll find hidden meaning and secret messages. Black out poetry uses newspapers, old book pages, scissors, and a black market to create original poetry! Scan the page for words/phrases that jump out at you, and look at those words as raw material to make your poem. Black out everything else on the page, and create something entirely new.

Mini Comic Books

Did you know that people have tried to ban all kinds of comics, like The Amazing Spider-man and Batman? Comics have a long history of bans and self-censorship, so we’re celebrating Banned Books Week by creating mini comics. If you can fold paper and draw a story, you can make a comic!

Drop in any time to make your very own mini comic books during Banned books Week, and learn about the history of comic book censorship.
