Now that we have a typewriter at the library, it's time to use it. We are launching a poetry contest.

The rules are simple: come to the library, type your best poem in French, hand it to the librarian with your name and email on the back. The winner will receive a book and their poem will be pinned on the board above the machine and shared on our Instagram. You have until June 23rd.

The competition is open to all (members and non-members), regardless of age or French level. Let out the Rimbaud in you!
