We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s natural that we all take a minute and consider those things for which we are grateful. I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and working as one of your librarians for the past several months tops my list. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and your families, whether it was through one of our programs or just by talking to you in the library. For every book and DVD we buy and program we plan, we try our best to keep you and your needs in mind. The library wouldn’t exist without you! Thank you for your support and your generosity. And thank you for letting us be a part of your lives.
May this week bring you joy and peace as you spend time with your friends and families. I’m looking forward to watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, making my mother’s rolls, and spending time with good friends. And yes, I plan to spend a fair amount of time reading. I have my eye on “American Heiress” by Daisy Goodwin and “Reamde” by Neal Stephenson. So here’s to a week full of loved ones, good food, and some great books. Happy Thanksgiving!
