Calling All Young Writers!

DBRL is hosting three different programs at the Callaway County Public Library and Columbia Public Library to help you prepare for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November. These events provide great opportunities for teens to get their words into the world, connect with other local authors and hone their craft.
