Write a Short Story @ Milpitas Library

Saturday, November 30, 2019
Milpitas Library
In honor of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), we are encouraging our young writers to create a short story.  Write a short story (1-5 pages) anytime during the month of November and leave it in our special writing binder at the Children's Desk.  Come in and enjoy reading others' stories too.  In December, the children's librarians will read the stories and choose a winner for the best short story from each age group.  Children ages 6-14 can participate.  The age groups are 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14. Prizes will be awarded to each winner.  

For more information about NaNoWriMo and the inspiration for this program, visit https://www.nanowrimo.org/

We welcome newcomers to hobby gaming: bring your own games that you want to try out, or ask folks to teach you how to play a new one! Please note that Games Day is geared primarily toward adults, but we also welcome teens and families with school-age children.
