Program Description

Event Details

Skip the scramble for outlets at coffee bars and come to the library to connect with your fellow writers or to write individually! Feel free to stay all day or just stop by for a quick visit.

Black coffee will be provided at a first come first serve basis. You may also bring your own drinks and snacks inside. In fact we encourage people to make it a potluck, we have plenty of plug-ins!


Central Parking

Free library parking is available in Central's underground parking garage for two hours per visit. Parking around the library is metered at various costs from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
