Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month, held every April, is the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.
The library is doing its part by offering a ‘Poetry Magnet Board,’ located near the circulation desk. This is a fun way for you to bring out the hidden poet in yourself!

The library presently has two exhibits in our foyer. The first exhibit celebrates 40 years of the publication INTI. Inti: Revista de literatura hispánica was founded by Roger B. Carmosino (Foreign Language Studies Department, Providence College) in November 1974 at the University of Connecticut. It has been continually published since then on all areas of academic research, as well as a vehicle for creative writing, in Latin America and the Spanish Peninsula. The online edition of Inti (Inti Archive) through Digital Commons, Providence College, provides back issues of the journal in a freely available edition. Images of the INTI exhibit can be seen here.
The second exhibit focuses on the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA). NEPCA is a regional affiliate of the Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association. The purpose of NEPCA is to encourage and assist research, publication, and teaching on popular culture and culture studies topics by scholars in the northeast region of the United States. Providence College and Dr. Robert Hackey (2014 Program Chair and 2015 NEPCA President) hosted the NEPCA 2014 annual conference. Julie A. DeCesare (Assistant Professor and Commons Librarian, Head of Education & Research) coordinated the exhibit (Oct. 2014 – Jan. 2015) in Phillips Memorial Library+Commons. Images of the NEPCA exhibit can be seen here.
