Katie, WDM

Moved back to WDM after 30 years. ...WDM library has been a big part in my healing process. Days spent in the library reading magazines.

Although you could definitely jam to LANY or twenty one pilots while participating. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. You can join other writers and complete a 50,000-word […]

It is officially Teen Read Week! I can already hear you asking a couple questions. The first probably is: what is Teen Read Week? Long story short, it’s a week-long event that began in 1998 that’s always the same week as Columbus Day. But instead of discovering continents, the point is for you to discover […]

Perhaps you’ve heard of Ransom Riggs. Even if that name doesn’t spark any recognition, his book might: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It reached the top of the New York Times Best Seller list and the Tim-Burton-directed movie is hitting theaters this weekend (let us know what you think of it!). The book is […]
