Register for the meeting here. On the day of the meeting, a Zoom link will be sent to your email.

Join us online or in-person at the Three Creeks Community Library on March 11th at 6:30 as we explore all that your local library has to offer. Librarians will guide you through free library resources to help you write your book through all stages of the research process –  from the beginning when your book is still a twinkle in your eye to the last line when your book is published as an instant best-seller. We’re here to help! Covering everything from where to begin the research process to finding the minutiae that will bring your book to life, we’ll show you how to use library-curated databases and references to help you create realistic settings, characters, and plot points. We’ll take you through the process from blank page to finished draft. Come prepared to find great tools to support your research regardless of whether you are looking for historical details or hypothetical what-ifs. The doors open for this meeting at 6:15. We can’t wait to see you there!
