In August 2021, the Poets House library at 10 River Terrace suffered a major flood. Miraculously, most of the collection was untouched by the flood. However, there was extensive damage to the space, which is in the process of being repaired.

Keep up to date with our progress toward reopening through our construction updates on this page. And check our our Hard Hat Reading Series to watch poets read their favorite poems in our library.
