Manchester Poetry Library will celebrate its 1st birthday this September.

To mark the occasion, the library is hosting lots of fun activities for people of all ages.

There will be Poetry Library tours every day at 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm, and a scavenger hunt and special poetry readings taking place throughout each day.

Those who enjoy crafting can make a Victorian greetings card too. You can also write your own poem and enter it into a competition to win a fantastic poetry hamper.
