Wherefore Art Thou, Haiku?
Write some fun haikus / and make card catalog art / five-seven-five GO!
Can we have a word? To celebrate National Poetry Month and National Library Week, Birnbaum Library and Mortola Library are hosting a series of events designed to stimulate your creativity.
Call for Haiku (NYC)
Help us celebrate
National Poetry Month
Enter a haiku
Birnbaum Library is accepting original haiku from Pace students from now until April 30. To enter the Birnbaum Library Haiku Contest, please send no more than three haiku from your Pace e-mail address to email@example.com.
Haiku should be on a book or library theme and be in traditional 5-7-5 syllable format. One lucky winner will receive a special gift from the Pace Bookstore and have their haiku permanently displayed on the wall in the Library. Runners-up will be selected for publication on the Library’s Facebook page.
Make Card Catalog Art (NYC)
If you’re feeling creative, help turn the Library's old catalog cards into works of art to display in the library. All you have to do is pick a card, any card, from the card catalog located near the Library’s entry/exit gates. Inspired by its title, create an image on either side of the card using any medium, put your name and e-mail address on the opposite side (so they can return it), and submit the card at the information desk before May 1. The Library will make an enlarged color photocopy of the card and put it on display on its entry wall. Pictured: The Theatres of Japan created by Matthew Carlin
Mortola Library Book Spine Poetry Contest (PLV)
Monday, April 20 and Tuesday, April 21 | Mortola Library Lobby
Book spine poetry is made by hitting the library shelves to find books with interesting titles then piling up the books and letting the spines create a poem. One winner will get a prize and poems will be posted on the Library’s social media accounts. Stop at the Reference Desk for contest guidelines. Click here to see poems from a previous year’s contest.
VOX Poetry Poster Display (PLV)
Student poems published in the fall 2014 issue of VOX are on display in large, poster-size format at the Mortola Library throughout April and May. Stop by and see the student works.
