We have a new program series for teens and parents: Getting Ready for College! On the first Saturday of each month, we will feature a different guest speaker on a topic related to the college prep and planning process. (You might remember in years past we staged a College Planning Expo each spring…but now we are going monthly!)
Our first speaker is the fabulous Alice Gorman, College and Career Assistant at FLHS. She will talk about the Summer Jumpstart: Things you can do this summer to improve your resume and make yourself an even more attractive applicant to the best colleges and universities. The program will begin at 2 PM in the Rotary Room, on the second floor of the Main Library. See you there!

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) – thousands of people all across the country take up the challenge to write a novel in one month.
Just imagine it…with a little planning, commitment and support, you can write a book.
Speaking of support: This year the Library is going to act as a haven for all those Fairfield Novelists-in-Action. Each Tuesday at 4 PM and 7 PM you can Come Write In at the Main Library Teen Room.
You’ll be able to get together with your fellow NaNoWriMo-ers to talk about how you are doing, share ideas and support each other through this incredible (and incredibly challenging process!)
Does this sound good to you? Then sign up on the official website and start planning: What will you write about?
