Wednesday, September 6 at 5 p.m.
Wednesday, September 20 at 5 p.m. at Barrett Memorial Library in
Are you a writer? Constantly coming up with stories and characters in your head? Want to get together with other like-minded tweens and teens and geek out over your ideas? Then this is the club for you! We’ll meet twice a month to write, eat snacks, and share what we’re working on (if we feel like it)—we’ll also start off each session with some writing prompts to get those creative juices flowing! Bring yourself, a notebook, and any stories or ideas you’d like to share!
Aram Public Library in Delavan and Barrett Memorial Library in Williams Bay are joining forces once again, so we hope you’re ready for some traveling creative writing fun! The meeting on the 1st Wednesday of the month will meet at your home library, while the location of the meeting on the 3rd Wednesday will alternate each month.
Kindness Rocks – Saturday, September 9 at 10 a.m.
Spread some kindness around…with Kindness Rocks. Join us to decorate rocks with positive pictures and sayings. Then, when you’ve finished, you can leave your rocks in random places outdoors for people to find! You can even leave clues online that would help lead rock hunters to your very special creation. (We have it on good authority that Delavan folks have already started leaving rocks around town!) How fun is that?!
