Come Write In during National Novel Writing Month 2019!
Patrons are invited and encouraged to use the Library for NaNoWriMo throughout the month of November. The Brenner Room is, in our opinion, the coziest and most writing-conducive space in the Library, but please write wherever the Muses dictate.
The Library will host a drop-in / no reservations required NaNoWriMo Kick-Off and Wrap Writing Quiet Areas in the Lower Level Meeting room on:
* Tuesday, 5 November (7:00PM-8:45PM)
* Monday, 25 November (6:00PM-8:45PM)
Patrons are welcome in the Alyce Brenner Room – or anywhere else in the Library – at any point during NaNoWriMo.
Come Write-In! We hope to see and support you during the struggles and successes of 2019’s National Novel Writing Month!
