What We’re Reading Wednesday: The Poetry Month Print-Your-Own-Bookmark Edition!

It’s April, which means we’ve been reading poetry (or re-reading some of our favorites) for National Poetry Month!

To help you keep track of your progress in books you’re currently reading, the Durham Tech Library has created some coloring page bookmarks for you.

Click on the images below to access the pdf of the coloring page bookmarks and print them out for yourself– remember to print 2-sided short edge (which–side note–is also how you print an awesome brochure). We recommend using some cardstock.

Is your department, club, campus, committee, or subgroup interested in participating in a What We’re Reading Wednesday blog post? The goal of the What We’re Reading posts is to highlight books, professional literature, blogs, or any other things you might be currently reading or have recently finished. Contact OCC librarian Meredith Lewis for more information.
