On Thursday, November 22 (Thanksgiving Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
Make a Hennepin County library your base of operations for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Our quiet spaces, writing classes, books and other resources about writing can get you started and keep you going.
Discover why you procrastinate, distract yourself and find it so hard to write at times. Harness the power of brain science to show up, sit down and write, no matter what. Taught by writing and creativity instructor and author Rosanne Bane. (Stay to write, share ideas and connect with fellow Wrimos.) Funded by Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
