Share in the Delight of an American Tradition

 

During storytime this morning, several young friends informed me that they would be celebrating Thanksgiving this week.  I asked them what their plans were, and they quickly noted that they were going to watch "the parade!"

Bubbles, Babies and Literacy

During each Infant Lapsit program, I like to provide an opportunity for the children to play with bubbles.  So, you might wonder how bubbles are related to a literacy program.  Everyone knows that children enjoy this activity; however, there really is more thought behind my choice.

 National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month is celebrated each November.  Would you like to know more about Native American histories and cultures?  Visit the library!  There are many items here at the library and also online that will support a deeper understanding of the American who first graced this land. Ask a librarian, they would love to assist you in your discoveries.
 

Holiday Craft with Ms Susan - Thursday, Nov. 17 @ 10 am

Ms Susan has created a colorful holiday craft that she wants to share it with all of her friends.  This program will be presented on Thursday, November 17th starting at 10:00 am.

Pre-School storytime includes stories, songs, fingerplays and is recommended for children 3 through 6 years of age. Registration is not required, but space is limited.
 

No Thanksgiving?

Family, friends and fabulous food. Who doesn't love Thanksgiving?  That may be the case today, but way back when "skirts were long and hats were tall" Americans were forgetting Thanksgiving, and nobody seemed to care! Thankfully, Sarah Hale appeared. More steadfast than Plymouth Rock, this lady editor knew the holiday needed saving. But would her recipe for rescue ever convince Congress and the presidents?

Join acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson on a journey of a woman and a pen that spanned four decades, the Civil War, and five presidents, all so you could have your turkey and eat it too!
