Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo

This summer, Lexington County Public Library encourages you to not only Imagine Your Story — but to tell it.

Go camping in the comfort of your own home with Camp NaNoWriMo this July. This summer version of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) allows users to choose their goals for how they spend their time and utilize their creativity. Perhaps that goal is to write a certain amount of words, or to spend an hour a day writing. Campers don’t even have to write a novel; it can be anything. Short stories, plays, poetry, scripts, fanfiction, nonfiction and comics are highly encouraged. The only common goal for every camper is to write.

Anna and the French Kiss
The Night Circus
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Water for Elephants

Camp NaNoWriMo is for all ages and campers can enroll for Camp NaNoWriMo online. For inspiration, check out some of these novels that started as NaNoWriMo projects or request these nonfiction titles for getting started on your own project.

Ask a Librarian

Camp NaNoWriMo

Ask a Librarian is a service available to patrons via phone or email (online chat coming soon). Not only can librarians provide book recommendations for you and your child, they can help you in so many other ways — they can actually help you find answers to the world’s most fascinating questions. For example, they can …

  • Find answers to questions for research in any area of study from aeronautics to zoology
  • ‎Locate information so you can develop a business plan, find sales leads to grow your business and research your competitors
  • ‎Identify alternative approaches to health care and wellness, focusing on perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated health
  • ‎Research businesses by industry or segment and company size; employment statistics, mapping and traffic modeling
  • ‎And yes, even help with the tough homework assignments students have in elementary, middle, high school or college

So, the real question is … What are you going to Ask a Librarian?
