Blackout Poetry

Blackout Poetry

Come to the library and try your hand at creating a poem for National Poetry Month.

Blackout poetry is when a page of text is completely blacked out (colored over so that it is no longer visible) except for a few select words. When only these words are visible, a poem is created from the existing text.

Take a Library Laptop Home for a Week!

CCC students can now borrow a library laptop with a carrying case to use at home for an entire week.  Bring your photo ID and sign the laptop policy form the first time you check one out.  Then get to work on your paper or project whenever and wherever you want!  Just be sure to save your work to the cloud or a USB drive rather than on the laptop itself.
