The Itinerant Poetry Library is a non-static, special collections public library of poetry. For free, for everyone, and for everywhere, or at least, everywhere it can get to! Since 2006 it has been circumnavigating the globe providing its services to the good citizens of each diverse community it has arrived in. 2010 sees 12 countries and 28 cities plenished with Itinerant Poetry Library provision, and the summer promises to welcome residents of Washington DC and Bucharest to the Library fold.
