Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. It combines so many things I love - eating, hanging out with family, and being grateful. This year, I'm so thankful that our world is heading in the right direction. In the Children's Room, the toys are back out, the craft table is back, and many of our in-person programs have returned. As always, I am truly appreciative of my amazing co-workers and our loyal patrons. And don't forget to stock up on books for the holiday weekend. Now bring on the turkey!
