Poetry Project

Published 08/02/19

The library, Medfield TV, and the Cultural Alliance of Medfield are partnering on a Poetry Project as a way for community members of all ages to engage in creating and reading poetry, culminating with a temporary installation of poems at the former Medfield State Hospital in the fall. Check out the ways to participate below!

Share Your Favorite Poem with Medfield TV!

Pick our your favorite poem and share it with the community by reading it aloud on Medfield TV. The readings will be available to view through the Medfield TV website. Open to anyone in Medfield and surrounding communities. Contact Brett Poirier at Brett@Medfield.TV to schedule your reading.

For Kids

Bring your kids to Lunch Bunch in the Gazebo on August 7, August 15, August 21 at 11:30 and in additional to normal outdoor storytime activities, get creative in decorating plywood boards on a theme. Or stop by the End of Summer Celebration, August 23, 2-4 pm to decorate. Then come see the great work installed at the State Hospital in the fall!

For Teens

What’s blackout poetry? It’s so much fun and will be available for teens to do in the lower level of the library for the rest of the summer. Come check it out!

For Adults & Everyone

Stop by the lobby of the library to write a Haiku that could be picked to be featured at the State Hospital in the fall! Also, check out the library on Facebook to participate there.
