Opening for the Baltimore Poetry Library

Liberal Arts and Policy Building

The University of Baltimore’s Klein Family School of Communications Design is the new home of the Baltimore Poetry Library, a compilation of thousands of volumes of poetry in various formats that constitutes the single largest collection of poetry in the mid-Atlantic region. The school will host an opening of the collection on Saturday, March 5, in and around the Carol Peirce Resource Room, located in Room 303 of the University’s Liberal Arts and Policy Building, 10 W. Preston St. It will take place from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Baltimore Poetry Library includes poetry books and anthologies, handmade books, chapbooks, broadsides, manuscripts, journals, and audio-video materials. While the collection includes work by a range of American, British, and authors of other nationalities, it also showcases the work of Baltimore poets, from national and internationally known writers such as Adrienne Rich, Karl Shapiro, and Lucille Clifton, to a range of regionally and locally known poets.
