Our young writers used magnetic words, picture prompts, and drawings to create their own poems as the club focused on National Poetry Month.

Do your children love to write?

If so, our Wordplay Club at Mentor Public Library is perfect for them

Each meeting, the young writers find a different way to spark their creativity.

This month, they used magnetic words, drawing, and picture prompts to craft their own poems. (It is National Poetry Month, after all.)

At a previous meeting, the kids each got Surprise Bags with a different—you guessed it—surprise inside. They then had to include their surprise itembe it a wrench or plastic insect—into their story.

They’ve also written dialogues that they acted out with puppets. (Sometimes, dialogue feels sharper when it comes from a shark’s mouth.)

Wordplay Creative Writing Club meets at 4:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month at our Main Branch. The next meeting is May 11. It’s for kids in third through sixth grade.

You can register your child for Wordplay by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221 or by visiting the Mentor Library’s website.

Mentor Public Library has a writing club for teens too.

Our Write On Club meets on the third Monday of every month at our Main Branch.

They use different writing prompts and brainteasers to hone their writing skills.  Any teen who wants to join their ranks is welcome. It’s a fun, supportive place to practice and improve your writing with other teens who are doing the same thing.

Our next meeting is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 16, at our Main Branch. You can register for it on Mentor Library’s website, as well.
