Poets House is one of the largest poetry libraries in the world. Our 70,000-volume library is open to everyone, from students to award-winning writers. Our exhibitions, classes, and programming strive to showcase the relationship between poetry and other arts, histories, and sciences, allowing for constant and unexpected discoveries in imagination and language. _______ For #GivingTuesday, we hope you’ll support Poets House and our mission: to make poetry accessible to all. Donation link is in our profile; we thank you for sustaining our little utopia on the Hudson!
