Blog: Month: October 2017

Wednesday November 1, 7-8:30PM National Novel Writing Month
Write-In & Kickoff

Ever wanted to write a novel but you just needed motivation? Here’s your chance! November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel. We’re throwing a write-in and kick off party to discuss the basics and begin working towards the 50,000 word goal!

Bring your trusty notebook or a dependable laptop and write amongst other NaNoWriMo hopefuls.

Afterwards, socialize with fellow writers over refreshments generously provided by The Malden Writers’ Collaborative.

Annual Holiday Food Drive

Bring a little cheer to a struggling family.  Library patrons can contribute to the Salvation Army’s work in Malden to make the holiday season festive for others.  Lend a hand in creating a memorable Thanksgiving for those who might otherwise not be able to celebrate.

These items will be gladly accepted:

  •            stuffing
  •            dry gravy
  •            mashed potatoes
  •            canned tuna, chicken or other canned goods
  •            apple sauce
  •            cranberry sauce
  •            peanut butter

Ethnic foods are welcomed; staples, such as rice or beans, are always good additions to the pantry.

The collection container will be out on the main floor opposite the circulation desk.  The food drive will continue after Thanksgiving to accept donations for Christmas.
