El Jardín

Welcome to El Jardín (The Garden)! Get inspired by primary resources from the Library’s collections. For each item below:

  • come with me to visit historic beauties at the Library of Congress, and meet the curator too;
  • read the curator’s description of these magnificent findings, along with links so you can go further;
  • read a poem response from me, which you can replicate in your own words.

History awaits us—let’s step into word-art. Explore and experiment until a poem is born. As a matter of fact, we can start a La Casa de Colores poetry folder and add a new poem every month. Help me bring the wealth of knowledge in our nation’s library to life, through your poetry.

¡Viva El Jardín!
