Starting July 8 parking at Brookline Village will be limited due to the Pierce School construction.

Please note: The Brookline Village Library will be closed on Sundays from June 16 to September 1.

VIRTUAL ONLY: Flash Fiction Writing Workshop


Get writing at the Library! Authors Chandreyee Lahiri and Malavika Shetty will discuss their own writing journeys, give an introduction to flash fiction (very short stories), and provide a writing prompt. Then everyone will have a chance to write their own piece of flash fiction. Come write with us, whether you’ve been writing for a while or you want to give creative writing a try.

We’ll have writing supplies on hand, though you can also bring a pen and paper or a laptop, or borrow a Library Chromebook.
