Calls pour in from around the globe to this Tucson poetry center, here's why
Sarah Kortemeier, library director at the University of Arizona Poetry Center, has spoken with callers from throughout the United States and several countries overseas. The Poetry Center has the most complete collection of modern poetry in the U.S., so it is often a go-to resource for scholars and students. The center does not check out its books or materials, though. It is designed to be a place where visitors can read and reflect. So the library doors will remain closed until they can safely be opened again. In the meantime, "The Librarian" can be reached by dialing the Poetry Center's main number, 520-626-3765, every Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m.
