Afternoon Freewrite

Express Yourself

Sometimes the best way to express yourself is with a nice cup of coffee, a pen, some paper and some good ole' writing. Starting September 16, join the Northeast Neighborhood Library for an "Afternoon Freewrite." Here, you will have the opportunity to let your thoughts and ideas flow freely...onto the page, of course.   This program is held every Wednesday from 1-2:30 p.m., in the conference room on the mezzanine level.
