The library also offers a number of great spaces and resources for writers of all levels. In fact, during November’s National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO), we are hosting write-ins . Coffee, tea and water will be on hand. There will be room for writers to gather and lots of quiet places to research and write.
