November:Novel Writing Month

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Ask in the Library (AA232) or ASC (AA229) for more information on NOVA's NOVEL NOVEMBER.

Local Author/ NOVA Alumnus does book talk

Local author, NOVA Alum, and Veteran Michael Cabrera celebrated the publishing of his first novel, The Wheel and the Day, at the NOVA Alexandria Campus Library Thursday October 11th.
Mr Cabrera gave a book talk discussing his novel, the writing process, the challenge of getting published, and how he draws his inspiration. This is the first Local Author Event in recent memory at the Alexandria Campus Library and hopefully there are more to come. The event was well attended by students, staff, and community members.

Throwback Thursday

The Library no longer charges fines for overdue material (except Reserve items held behind the Circulation Desk -- which carry a $4 per hour fine).

But back in the day, the Library did charge fines, and recorded them in this official book:

Back in the 1970s fines started at 50¢
