“Find Your Place at the Library,” this year’s theme for National Library Week, was chosen far before the emergence of a global pandemic would force most libraries to close their doors. During these uncertain times as we face unprecedented changes to our day-to-day activities, many of us are seeking a sense of place, and at the Altadena Libraries, we believe that even digitally we can all find a sense of place at our local libraries.
Every year, poets from around our community gather to share their work featured in the Altadena Literary Review Anthology and connect with community members over their shared love of the art form. This year, the Altadena Library is proud to continue this tradition in a new way. Poetry & Cookies will be presented digitally, including a ceremonial passing of the laurels from our current Altadena Poets Laureate to the new Poets Laureate and readings by poets from the Altadena Literary Review Anthology.
