According to the Vancouver Public Library, 700 library patrons viewed The World Poetry Peace Project display in 2007.
*One hundred twenty five poems were written for display on the night of the Gala on February 23, 2007 by the public.
*Seventeen World Poetry poets and writers volunteered at the "Create a Poem" table next to the display Monday through Saturday during the month of February 2007.
