Happy Veterans’ Day to all of you brave men and women out there who have worked so hard to protect our country and freedom. We appreciate you more than we can say! If you want just a little taste of what these men and women have gone through, we have a whole section of books about military history, the Vietnam War, the Korean War, the war in Iraq, World War II, and much more. Ask one of our friendly librarians, or head over to the 940s and start browsing!
Have you ever thought about writing an entire novel in a month? It sounds impossible, but thousands of authors every November commit to writing 50,000 words in 30 days. That’s about 1,667 words a day, or approximately 7 pages. The challenge is called called NaNoWriMo, (which, of course, stands for National Novel Writing Month.) Sign up here: https://nanowrimo.org/sign_up, and remember, at the end of the month, when your novel is finished, you can use our Self Publishing Toolbox to get your work in the hands of readers! Find the toolbox here: http://www.infosoup.info/self-pub.
Check out our new seasonal fall display! We’re taking down the spooky and replacing it with deer hunting, the Green Bay Packers, and Thanksgiving, as well as some delicious fall cooking and baking books.

This month’s book is Thanksgiving by Janet Evanovich, and we have several copies at the circulation desk available for check out.
