ON THE LIBRARY
NOVEMBER 7, 2005
Writing and Goal Setting
Workshop Facilitated by Published Author
Every day presents us with a new opportunity; an opportunity to make
life as rewarding as possible. I find that being able to enter the doors
of our library every day gives me the opportunity to meet some of the most
interesting people, people that make the community of Wellsville a great
place to live. However, I would like to meet more people. It is amazing
the things you can learn by listening to a new friend. You don’t always
have to read a great book or attend a challenging class to learn something
new. All you have to do is open your eyes and ears to a stranger. You will
be amazed by how rewarding it is to learn what you do not know.
If you are interested in learning something new, please attend one of
our programs during the month of November. You will be rewarded with a
good time and new friends.
The library’s new Scrabble™ Group will be meeting on Thursday, November
10 to play the relaxing and therapeutic game of Scrabble™. Research shows
that the game of Scrabble™ enhances both mental and physical capabilities.
By playing Scrabble™, players of all ages can improve reading and writing
skills as well as strengthen muscle mass. The game is also a good way of
alleviating pain associated with arthritis. The
group will be meeting at 6:30 pm in the Living History Room.

Additionally, Kinship Family and Youth Services will be offering The

Lastly, author Colette Shaw will appear at the Library on Thursday,
November 17 at 7 pm. Ms. Shaw will be discussing the joys of writing and
the best ways for new writers to set goals. Ms. Shaw will also reflect on
her most recent book, Won’t Get Fooled Again, which was released in
Spring 2005. "Writing a book is as much a lifestyle as it is a creative
process," says Shaw. "If you let yourself, you can find a thousand
seemingly legitimate reasons not to pursue your dreams. Making the choice
to go for it is usually more difficult than the actual achievement."
