The Library's ninth annual poetry slam will be held on Saturday, May 1.

This year's theme is art and culture. In honor of the Legacy Amendment, which has provided Ramsey County Library with funding for arts and cultural programming, write a poem about an artform that inspires you, a tradition passed along in your culture or anything related.

Contestants will perform their original poetry and will be judged by members from the community. Prizes will be awarded.
This program is funded with money from the vote of Minnesota residents on November 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve our state's art and cultural heritage.
