November is officially the month for NaNoWriMo. If you’ve never heard of NaNoWriMo, it means that November is National Novel Writing Month. The challenge is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. 

What happens with your story after it’s finished?

B. Alan Bourgeois of the Texas Association of Authors is coming to the Parker Williams Branch to let you know the process of getting published.

Join us on October 14th in Room 3 at 10:30 AM to get some inspiration to start AND finish that novel. 

Coding for Kids and Teens

If you've ever visited a website or played a game using an app on a phone or tablet, you have used something that was created using code. When someone codes, they create instructions for a computer to follow, and this makes it possible for us to play computer games, use apps, browse the web, and more. Learning to code allows someone endless opportunities, including creating their own games and even their own websites!
