February 6, 2019, marked the installation of the PoetryBridge Lending Library. All the books were purchased by Leopoldo Seguel although it is anticipated that others will contribute to the library in the future. PoetryBridge is now purchasing at least one book from each featured reader in 2019 and adding them to the library. The intention is to work backwards into 2018 and add additional books from 2018 featured readers as finances and availability allow.
The other poetry related books are from Leopoldo’s private library in the hopes that they will find a better use than continuing to sit on his dust catching book shelves.
People hanging out at C&P can take a book to read while they are there or if the inspiration arises to pursue the book more thoroughly, they are invited to take the book home and to return it within a month.
The book shelf is in the Southeast corner of the main room and my secret goal is to expand the entire corner with poetry related books! Please don’t tell Pete. Thanks!
