Morgantown Public Library System’s Clinton District Public Library has collaborated with Main Street Morgantown to host a Community Scavenger Hunt–it all starts November 30th and ends December 5th! Some of our favorite book characters have escaped the library and are hiding in store windows in downtown Morgantown. Find all of them for a chance to win a prize!
Between November 30th and December 5th walk around downtown Morgantown and find our 12 book characters on different store front windows.
Learn how a story unfolds with the roll of a dice in our virtual gathering of the 2020-2021 Choose Your Own Adventure book series on November 19th at 6:00pm on Facebook Live! Visit new places and attempt new things each month as we go through each book in the series until May 2021.
This month, we’ll be reading “The Lost Ninja” by Jay Leibold. As part of the activity, we’ll have a yoga instructor teach us some fun ninja moves in a separate Zoom meeting.
You must register to join the club. Once a member, you will receive a free copy of each month’s book in the mail. However supplies are limited. At the end of the year, members that complete each month’s challenge will receive a prize pack!

What is NaNoWriMo?
NanoWriMo encourages writers, young and old, to set personal goals in writing a novel in one month (or making significant progress!)
What do I (or my teen) will write about?
You can choose whatever project you want! If you have an idea already for a project pursue that! However, if you do not have an idea and have no idea where to start but still want to participate, we are encouraging our participants to write a novella. Think soap opera style, tons of drama and completely ridiculous – anything goes so let your creativity shine!
This seems like a lot of work. How many words would I have to write each day?
You set the limit and you can change your word goal as many times as you want. It’s not about how many words you write – it’s about having fun and setting the habit!
What do you mean by ‘classroom’?
We will have a personal classroom through NaNoWriMo’s official website where our participants can join our specific classroom using a unique classroom code. In this online classroom we will have announcements, novel chat message boards, and challenges. In addition to the classroom we will have a few Zoom calls throughout the month as a check in and a sounding board for your stories. These calls are optional.
Email Amanda with any questions you may have: firstname.lastname@example.org

Teen fans of Minecraft! Join us for our second gathering of our Teen Fandom Support Group and this month we’ll be sharing our love of Minecraft over Zoom on October 15th at 4:30pm.
The plan is to meet on Zoom, however, we may organize an impromptu gathering on Minecraft so we can all play together. When time allows, we’ll talk and share tips.
The goal is to provide teens (ages 12-18) in our community a safe space to talk about their passions while following social distancing guidelines. Each month we’ll have a different fandom topic planned. So be on the lookout!
Register by October 14th at 5:00pm: https://forms.gle/Uty9hnxc1rSTX82r6
Need more inspiration for the meeting? We have compiled a list of recommendations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16ilW1ud3rIsmh5I5tI5dODaJyUHyUtSw3VRNBHnxypY/edit?usp=sharing

Online submissions are accepted until 11:59 PM EST, October 21st for three different age categories: kids, teens, and adults at https://forms.gle/Lnf8H2rPcyHVdaV59.
