Readers and Writers in the Library: Perfect Together

Readers are very often writers-in-waiting, needing only some encouragement, tools, and practice to become writers for personal satisfaction and possibly for publication. Bringing writers into the library as writing teachers, coaches, workshop leaders, writing circle facilitators, and inspirations, will not only expand and enhance your patron programs, but tighten and highlight the strong connection between reading and writing. Learn about the many different ways authors can help your library become a place for writers.
