The Downs-Jones Library will be hosting our Poetry on the Patio event on October 14. 2015. In preparation for the event, we encourage you to explore the 20th Century Poetry collection that is available through the TexShare electronic database. The Chadwyck-Healey Literature Collection divides the poetry into an American and an English poetry database.
