Lots of people say they've got a book in them, but not everyone gets it onto the page. Chandler Library can help during NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month, November 1-30.
The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words (the length of the average classic sci-fi novel) during the month of November, to get a good start on the first draft of your novel. Need a place to write? The computer lab at the Hamilton Library is open to NaNo writers every Saturday in November from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Register to reserve your spot. The Downtown and Sunset libraries have study rooms you can reserve daily for up to two hours, using your library card. The Basha Library features a writing group just for tweens age 8-11, every Tuesday from 5:00 to 6:00 pm.
