Poets, spoken word performers and guitarists can take the stage this weekend at the first Anacortes Library Poetry Group open mic night at the library.

The group will hold events at 7 p.m. the second Saturday of each month, organizer John Morgan said.

People are welcome to come read poetry, prose or short stories of their own or written by someone else. Each person is limited to about five minutes, Morgan said.

The first event is 7 p.m. Saturday.

It is free and for all ages.

The group is called the Anacortes Library Poetry Group because the library is providing the space, Morgan said.

Morgan said he first decided to create the group because of a similar event at the library in October and wanted to keep them going so that people can perform.
