John L. Dart Library - Throughout March - Write a haiku about your favorite author for the chance to win a prize! Submit your original poem at your local branch or by emailing [email protected] (subject: Haiku Contest). Entries must follow the 17-syllable haiku format: the first line should contain five syllables, the second seven syllables, and the third five syllables. Qualifying poems will be displayed at the John L. Dart Library during April, and members of the public may vote on their favorite poem once per day through April 22. Library staff may submit poems but will not be eligible for the prize.
