Day Eight partners with the DC Public Library (DCPL) for our poetry reading series and competition. The DCPL provides space for community organizations conducting programming that fits within the library’s overall mission, and in partnering with the library Day Eight has reached scores of poets as well as readers interested to encounter and support local poets.
