Beginning Thursday, September 14, carpet installation will occur on stairs in various areas of the Main Library. Powerful adhesive is required for this installation, so be advised that you may experience some days and times when the smell of the adhesive may be strong. Also, certain stairs may be temporarily inaccessible. We anticipate the remainder of the installation to be complete within 7-10 days. Thank you for your patience.

Farmington Community Library National Novel Writing Month 2017

National Novel Writing Month @ Farmington Community Library


What is this crazy thing called NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month is a yearly international event that takes place the whole month of November. In essence, it’s an excuse to stop making excuses and actually write! Many of us have stories or poems, memoirs or travelogues in our heads that we’ve always meant to write down and just “have never found the time.” In November, you can give yourself permission to make the time by joining thousands of people worldwide – and dozens in your hometown – who are also making the effort to spend time writing this month.

Whether you decide on the traditional challenge – writing 50,000 words of a brand-new novel in those 30 days – or become a NaNo rebel – just write! Poetry, nonfiction, adding to previous work, short stories, whatever – you’re welcome to join us for write-ins or via social media to have fun this November – and write!


Join in!

No matter if you’re new to this exciting month or a veteran of past NaNo sucesses, everyone is welcome to join us for the programs and activities listed below.

NaNoWriMo begins at 12:01 am on November 1! Good luck, and we hope to see you at our write-ins (Sundays and the first and last days of the month; more information below).


Social Media

Can’t make one of the in-house write-ins? More comfortable in your own writing corner? You can still join in the fun via social media! Use one of the platforms below to join daily check-ins, offer support, ask questions, and generally have fun this NaNo!



Join the Farmington Community Library NaNoWriMo Support Group at FCL NaNoWriMo Warriors on Facebook. Here we’ll post random prompts and challenges, call for first lines of the day, and rally encouragement. You can also post questions, ideas, and make conversation with other NaNo warriors.

We did it! We got through November, we wrote until our fingers wore down to nubs, and now it’s time to relax and bask in the glow of victory.

Whether you wrote 50 words or 50,000, you’re invited to join library staff for a victory celebration early in December. Details will be determined by NaNo participants, so keep an eye out for discussion of venues/ideas! The one thing we do know? There will be food involved!
