The Putney Public Library has announced the start of the "Writer's Clubhouse." It is a free, after-school writing hour for elementary and middle-school story-tellers.

The Writer's Clubhouse meets at the Putney Public Library each Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. The clubhouse is led by Deb Ayer.

All materials are provided. The goal of this program is to inspire and foster youth writing, to publish student work, share ideas and (let's admit it) to have fun.

The September/October theme is things odd and unexpected.

The clubhouse meets every Wednesday. Check the library calendar for theme details and activities:

Putney Library is located at 55 Main St. in Putney.

This program is free and open to the public.
