JPL Poetry Hunt!

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Joplin Public Library and Post Art Library invite you to participate in a special poetry hunt!

Visit the Library to find one of 100 poems hidden throughout the building and post a photo of yourself with your poem on social media using our hashtag: #JPLPoetryHunt2022.

According to their website, the Academy of American Poets launched National Poetry Month in April 1996 to “remind the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters.” For more information about NPM 2022, visit
