“Poetry is an egg with a horse inside.”
—Third grader

Welcome to the Greenwich Free Library’s Summer Reading Poetry Walk!

We are excited to offer this family activity to our community members and patrons and hope that participants will enjoy the wide variety of poems that are scattered about the village of Greenwich.

There are fifteen stops in total on this walk with each unique poem selected for each unique location.

Participating in our Summer Reading Challenge?

Each poem can earn you five minutes towards your weekly reading goal! Just send us a picture of you at the actual poem stop and we will add the time to your reading log. We will proudly display the pictures you send on our social media and website.

Check out the map below to see where all the poems are!
