Live on Stage

Delray Beach Public Library offers a variety of live performances throughout the year. Music, from jazz to barber shop to classical, as well as spoken word, and staged readings of new plays are some of the exciting live programs offered for your enjoyment.

Poetry Open Mic on the Avenue

Welcome to your five minutes of fame.  Delray Library, on the Avenue, is      opening its stage to all poets on the 4th Wednesday of each month.  Whether novice or professional, you are invited to read or recite your original poems live on stage.  You’ll have five minutes.  All we ask is that you avoid hate speech, and overtly violent and pornographic content.

To reserve a spot, send an email to by 5 pm the Monday before.  Walk-in poets accepted as time permits.

Show time: 6 pm to 7:30 pm
Dates:  June 26, July 24, August 28, September 25 and October 23

No sessions in November and December due to holidays.
