That’s right it’s National Novel Writing Month!
This year over 400,000 aspiring writers worldwide have taken on the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in a month. National Novel Writing Month is a non-profit organization who “believe stories matter.”
One of Fairfield Woods Branch Library’s very own library collection page- and now freshman in college- Mary Quinn, has participated in NaNoWriMo for the past several years. And, her first year’s effort, Thorn in My Side, was published this Spring by Melange books-Fire and Ice YA division! You can check out a copy of her fantastic book at the library. And if you feel inspired, head on over to NaNoWriMo.org and find out how you can start to participate.
After another spectacular week of candy-based crafting, and another of voting by Branch library patrons and staff, we have the results of our 9th Annual Peeps Diorama contest! Whether you love (or love to hate) these hyper-colored, slightly sticky marshmallow treats, you ‘ll surely appreciate all the creativity displayed by the teens of the downUNDER Teen Center!
There is always something going on at the downUNDER for teens in grades 6 & up, including weekly craft-stravaganzas each Wednesday. Stop by from 3:00 – 4:45 pm Mondays-Thursdays when school is in session to get in on the action!
