There’s been a murder at the library!

Thursdays in November (except 11/23)


Young Writer’s Program (YWP)

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! Participants (17-and-under) will set reasonable-but-challenging individual word-count goals and draft an entire novel.  We will meet once a week (except Thanksgiving) to share our progress, get some writing tips, and have uninterrupted free-writing time.


Can’t make it to the library?  Join our virtual classroom!
