NaNoWriMo Virtual Write-in Just what is NaNoWriMo? According to their website, “NaNoWriMo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides tools, structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds — on and off the page”. And November is National Novel Writing Month, when writers all over the world each work on writing an entire novel, or part of one, by setting aside time to work on their craft. Sometimes they work at a “write-in” to give and get support from other writers. The Fern Ridge Library has created a virtual space where writers can gather. Join Meli, library staff member and accomplished writer, as she hosts a virtual write-in every Monday in November, 2 until 4 PM on Zoom. Meli will help you get started with NaNoWriMo, and you will meet up with other new and seasoned writers on Zoom. For more information and to request the Zoom link, email email@example.com, or call 541-935-7512. Free!

Just Breathe: Library Un-program What just happened? I’m exhausted. I still can’t believe it! Now what? So much has been going on in our world. You might be feeling overwhelmed and just need a moment to breathe. The staff at the Fern Ridge Library is on your team.

Library hours are Monday 10-2, Tuesday through Friday 2-6, and Saturday 10-2. Stop in or call 541-935-7512 to let us know what we can do for you. Stay well. We care.
