Libraries are not only about reading, we can help with your writing aspirations as well. All you need is a library membership to access free writing courses of all kinds, including travel, memoir, mystery, children’s, business and more. Through Gale Courses your Library membership provides you access to interactive, instructor led courses that you can take entirely online. Courses run for six weeks and new sessions begin every month.
Looking for more writing challenges? Join us at the Library on Saturday April 18 from 1:30-3pm for a Six-Word Memoir Writing Workshop. Ages 9 and up. What is a Six- Word Memoir? Based on the Six-Word format, used around the world as a writing exercise for students in second grade classrooms to graduate schools, the objective is to capture one’s life story in six words. In March, Danielle, our Young Person’s Librarian visited Langdale Elementary and Elphinstone High School and asked students to describe their life in exactly six words. Their memoirs are on display in the children’s section at library for the month of April; drop by and read what young people are saying about their lives. Participants of the workshop on April 18th will be welcome to add their memoir to the library display.
