Work has been busy - we are hosting another series of author visits and write-ins for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). We started with a kick-off event last week to get everyone signed up and ready. Also, we just had Zombie Fest (an after hours teen event).
We have the Teen Film Festival coming up, and I'm also preparing for a Day of the Dead craft program and a cake pop-decorating program! Our teen-hosted events have been going really well too - Teen Advisory Board (TAB) members host after school games, crafts, or tech programs.

How was your October?
