How the library can help:

  • Join other writers of all ages for Write-Ins each Saturday in November, 2 - 4 p.m. in the Conference Room.
  • Check out the NaNoWriMo display in the Teen area for books about writing, as well as plot and character workbooks to help you get started.
  • Free computers and wifi! Remember, if you use one of our computers you'll need your own flash drive or webspace to save your work.
  • Tables and chairs and outlets--and study rooms! Claim a space to plug in your laptop or pick up your pen and get an hour or so of writing in after school.
Need a little more inspiration? Here's a list of authors who wrote their novels during NaNoWriMo and got them published! Check out the books in the Teen area display too.
