Read On! NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is upon us! NaNoWriMo (pronounced “nah-no-wry-mow”) happens every November and is a time when participants attempt to write a novel (or 50,000 words) between November 1st and 30th. 

If you’ve ever thought, “I could/should write a book,” now’s your chance! We have an entire month focused on just that. With two write-in sessions each week in November – Mondays from 6-9 PM and Saturdays from 9 AM-Noon (except November 30th), you can join other ambitious writers on your journey. 

These sessions are pretty low-key. We’ll have coffee and mints for inspiration and one of our staff will moderate. Moderation for a write-in session may sound strange, but it’s pretty fun. It includes pep-talks, word sprints (trying to reach a word count goal in a set amount of time), and writing prompts (that are often random quotes, items, or ideas you can include in your writing).  Plus, write-ins give you a group of people willing to discuss random or strange plot points.   

NaNoWriMo is full of people with different goals, so come write with us even if you don’t want to write 50,000 words in a month.

This Thursday teens will get to try their hand at solving the puzzles in this year’s Escape Room. Teens need to sign up for a time to go through the room, but there are still a handful of spots left. Their choices are 4:30, 6:00, or 7:30 PM. 

Next Thursday at 6:30 PM adults can hang out with me and learn how to knit! We’ll start a washcloth project and learn the basics of casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and casting off. Anyone interested should bring a skein of 100% cotton yarn (Sugar ‘n Cream or Peaches & Creme are good choices) and size 7 knitting needles. Also, your washcloths might look a mess. And that’s okay. Knitting can be tricky at first. 



  1. You have all the social media links. How come you don’t have an email link? I don’t have social media accounts but I would like to email four pages on the Jefferson Highway to the Genealogy Department. There are two pages of turn by turn directions from Pryor to the Wagoner/Muskogee County line and two pages of turn by turn directions from Pryor to Welch, OK.
