These students’ rhymes will blow your mind! After last year’s fantastic Slam Poetry Competition, the audience begged us to host another one and we are more than happy to oblige. Twelve high school students with a talent and passion for the spoken word will take the stage and perform their original work for the audience and three fierce judges. The brilliant Jazz Hudson will grace us with her emceeing skills, ensuring this is a night you won’t want to miss.

What are First Fridays?
Debuting in January 2011 in celebration of the Library's centennial year, the ongoing "First Fridays" series presents different narratives, ideas and presentations that an audience might otherwise not consider or experience. First Fridays are for adults and high school students.
The Library's Main Reading Room is transformed into a beautiful venue for First Friday events. Built in 1966, the Library is nestled among the redwoods in an award-winning building and reflects the diverse intellectual interests of the community.
Programs typically last 90 minutes (includes Q&A). First Fridays feature a wine reception before and after our program. Patrons enjoy the intimate atmosphere and ability to meet our presenters. Attendance ranges between 115 and 260 people per event.
