Reaa poem at a participating business, and they’ll give you a treat!

PIYP 2020

2020 Poem in Your Pocket Dates will be announced in January, 2020. 

The PIYP event is typically scheduled for some time in April.


What is Poem in Your Pocket?

Poem In Your Pocket is modeled after the original celebration that began in New York City in 2002 in honor of April as National Poetry Month.  Rose Tree Media School District libraries have partnered with our public libraries and several businesses to bring the fun to our community. The idea is simple – grab a poem, carry it in your pocket, & share it with as many people as possible.

Grab a poem at your library! 


The following local businesses supported this event for our students & community:
