Fanfiction Writing Contest

What is Fanfiction?

Fanfiction is one way that a lot of fans engage with their favorite books, television shows, movies, and more. The writers take popular fictional characters and settings and create their own stories to build off of ones that exist. Sometimes this is done to “fix” what happened in the original story (for example, if the writer didn’t like the finale of a show), to expand on something they loved (such as exploring more details of a relationship), or just for fun (such as mashing up characters from different universes).

Rules

  • One entry is allowed per contestant, and you will be matched up against your peers (i.e. children will not be judged against adults).
  • The story can be written in any fandom you like, or mashup multiple universes!
  • Maximum length: 5,000 words. (No minimum.)
  • Your name/identifying info should not be on the story
  • Fill out the form below, attach this page to your story, and hand it in at the reference desk. This will allow it to be judged blind.
  • Any questions can be directed to Katherine in Reference or Alyce in Youth Services

Prizes

One winner from each category (adults, teens, or kids) will receive a small prize and have their story published on our website and linked in this very e-newsletter.

Your deadline is August 3, 2019! Get an entry form by clicking this link!

Cookbook Book Club

Third Saturday, monthly

A cook book club is a cross between a book club and a potluck. Each month we will will choose a book, and on the day of the meeting everybody will come to the library and bring one of the recipes from the book to share with the club. We’ll meet and eat and chat about the book and whatever else happens to come up.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE…

The club is currently CLOSED – we have over 12 members. If you’d like to be added to a waiting list, and get a call in the event that anyone quits the club, you can still contact Katherine at katherine@scituatelibrary.org, and leave your name and phone number.

North Scituate Farmers Market

The North Scituate Farmers Market is in full swing!  The opening day of the market was May 11 from 9am-12pm. This early in the season, our vendors have spring annuals and perennials and fresh leafy greens. Other vendors will have handmade jellies and jams and handcrafted items. Come to the market and support your local farms and crafters. The library will also be there, hosting a small book sale cart each week.

Bone Builders of RI

bone builders

Meets weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 1:30pm, and Saturdays at 10:30am

Bone Builders is an innovative exercise program based on collaborative work of international bestselling author Dr. Miriam Nelson and Tufts University, whose research has shown that moderate free-weight training preformed at least twice a week for six months can improve strength and balance, and increase energy levels, while significantly increasing bone density. This class meets three times a week in the North Scituate Public Library Meeting Room.
