Fall into These Audios

With the fall season in full swing, it’s time to get in the mood for one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. But before the big dinner and catching up with family and friends, I know many of you will be in the same boat as I am – spending a lot of time traveling or running countless errands in order to get ready for the big day.

No matter what your holiday plans are, a cozy audio will keep you feeling warm inside and out as you pass the time. The audios below are only a small sampling of the selection HCPL has to offer in cozy mysteries and fall-themed fiction. What is your favorite thing to listen to when fall comes around? 

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Not Just Turkey

  

In just a few days we will be enjoying the day called Thanksgiving. To many it’s a time of meeting with family, friends and plenty of eating. But have you really taken the time to explore the beginning of Thanksgiving? Come to the Library and check out this book called 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving a book by Chatherine O'Neill Grace and Margaret M. Bruchac..This book has a good spin on the subject. If you wish you can find this in our catalog @www.hcpl.net.

Happy Thanksgiving from us

To all of you, from all of us, Happy Thanksgiving. Although this year continues to be difficult for many, the joy and gratitude you have extended to us has been heartwarming. It's always a pleasure to serve you, and when we can also lighten your load a little, it's extra special. 

We've created a Thanksgiving tree on our Round Wall and many of our customers have expressed their thankfulness for their lives and loved ones in the form of messages on leaves. Every day the tree grows and fills out and embroiders our lobby with color . May your Thanksgiving weekend be similarly rich and joyful.            

Turkey Craft Program for Children

  Looking for some craft fun for the children during the Thanksgiving holiday break?  Join us on Tuesday, November 20 at 2:30 pm as we put together a paper turkey that you can use for a table decoration or hang up on a wall.  This program is recommended for children 4-12 years old.  Tickets are required.  They are free and available at the Kids Information Desk starting 30 minutes before the program. 

Gather 'Round the Table

It’s that time of year again.  For many of us, Thanksgiving is the real start to the holiday season.  We get together with family and friends and have a big dinner.  We talk and visit and catch up on everyone's news.  We probably watch some football or the parade or a favorite movie.  And in the midst of all the festivities, we remember how fortunate we are.

Goodbye Summer!

Summer is sadly coming to an end. Children are back in school, parents back to work, and we are setting up our book shelves for the next big thing. We want to help you get first dibs on great ideas for upcoming holidays. Plan your Halloween party in advance, find great Thanksgiving recipes to try out before the big day, or start collecting Christmas decorating ideas early this year.  It's always good to plan ahead and use all the resources you can get your hands on. Here are a few books to get you started. You can also browse our online library catalog. What's your favorite Holiday?
