In the Community

kindness mattersWe at NCW strongly feel that kindness, compassion, and selflessness are the cornerstones to building strong, vibrant communities. Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little,” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why for the month of December, we are donating 25% of all new and renewed memberships to Santa Cops of Larimer County. It’s one way we can help those who have little and we’ll continue to support local nonprofits month after month because . . . well, it’s simply the right thing to do. Join our welcoming and supportive writing community and help us pay it forward!

Hot off the Press

Miss Snoddy book2Ava, Ellie, and Griffin never had a teacher like Miss Snoddy . . . not even close! They are in awe of her amazing stories about our country’s history. When they learn about the Civil War, the friends are saddened by the treatment of slaves and the number of families separated and broken apart. After studying Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, the friends are determined to help. When they remember Miss Snoddy’s special link to history, they convince her to take them on another adventure. They don’t realize the dangers that await them as they help a family of slaves traveling North, and soon are running through forests and swamps to escape the slave-hunters and their hounds. They hope Miss Tubman’s survival skills and Miss Snoddy’s shoes will be enough to return them safely home. The Mysterious Miss Snoddy: The Underground Railroad (Vol.2) by Jim Campain is available on Amazon. See more member books in our library.
