The Silver City Public Library will be hosting two “write-ins” for National Novel Writing Month participants on Tuesday, November 17, 4:00-6:00pm, and Monday, November 30, 3:00-6:00pm. During National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, writers worldwide challenge themselves to complete a 50,000-word first-draft novel. In November 2014, 325,142 writers took on the NaNoWriMo challenge. Of those participants, 58,917 writers successfully completed a 50,000-word draft of a novel.
Writers ranging in age from high school through adulthood are invited to attend the write-ins at the library. Participants can bring laptops to work on their drafts, while sharing ideas and moral support. There will be food and drink available, and participants are welcome to bring a snack to share. Budding novelists will also have access to the library’s open wifi network.
Thanks to the Southwest Festival of the Written Word for supporting writing events at the library! For more information, contact Lillian Galloway at 575-538-3672 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Join us this Thursday, November 12 between 4:00 and 6:00pm at the library’s hangout for tweens and teens (ages 10 and up) called WildWorks, where the youth can experiment with robots, electrical circuits, 3D drawing, kinetic art, computer programming, and other hands-on activities. Stop by the library anytime between 4:00 and 6:00pm to join in, no registration necessary. WildWorks is a makerspace, a place to share tools, supplies, and ideas for creation and experimentation. Makerspaces across the country, many housed within libraries, give people a chance to explore and create using high-tech and low-tech tools. Next month’s WildWorks will be on Thursday, December 10, 4-6pm.
