Writing

Northeast Writing Class

Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 2:00 pm

They say writing is a solitary task. (That's true.) But sometimes you need the energy of a warrior and the inspiration of a teacher to continue, to overcome a block, to make it to the last sentence of your work. No matter what you're working on (fiction, non-fiction, poetry), join us for an afternoon of writing, every Wednesday from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., in the conference room on the mezzanine level. It takes one sentence a day to keep the writer's block away.   To respect the flow of the writing process, please arrive on time.

"Sit and Stay" Dog Story Time

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 6:30 pm

What has a wet nose and loves kids? A P.A.L. dog. Where do P.A.L. dogs love to listen to kids read? The Northeast Library. On the fourth Thursday of every month, dogs and kids get together for a “Sit and Stay” Dog Story Time at 6:30 p.m. in the Children's Room on the Story Time rug. Read to our furry P.A.L.* friends once a month - you'll love it and the dogs will love you.   Children ages 5-12 are welcome. Kids under 9 must have adult supervision. Come, sit and stay awhile. It'll be "pawsome."
