Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway won a bet with fellow writers by claiming he could write a novel in only six words. In honor of National Library Lover’s Month, we’re challenging you to do the same. Write a love story to the library in six words and drop it off at the front desk anytime in February. We’ll share the stories (anonymously, if you’d like) on social media and around the library.
