The Poetry Foundation Library is open to the public on select Saturdays. Take advantage of this opportunity to browse our collection of nearly 30,000 books of poetry, including 3,000 books especially for children. In addition, the Poetry Foundation Library is now offering a collection of restored recordings of poets reading their work. Dating back to the 1950s, these recordings come from the archives of Chicago's WFMT-FM and are available in the Library as a result of a unique partnership between the Poetry Foundation and WFMT-FM.

The Poetry Foundation Library will continue to serve the public during its regular weekday hours of 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Find updated information about Saturday openings here.

The library offers free field trips for schoolchildren as well as guided visits for adult groups. To schedule a field trip or group visit, please contact the librarian at library@poetryfoundation.org.
