Photos and text by Dara Mormile

The Canarsie Library near Rockaway Parkway and Avenue J was lyrically equipped this month. Staff created a poetry corner in the center of the library, showcasing some of the branch’s most interesting African- Amercian poets of all time in honor of National Poetry Month. While some modern poets made it to the display, classics written by Emily Dickenson were also included in the mix. Library manager Tom Muller said many of the books he’s chosen to put on display got a lot of attention and he’s had to refill the shelf with more poetic reads every day.
