Happy Thanksgiving

The YA Department would like to wish every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving.  As we reflect on the things for which we are thankful, we can't help but think of our wonderful patrons.  This community is so wonderful to serve and is comprised of such a great bunch of teens!

But don't let the good feelings stop here...In the spirit of the season, the Library will be collecting new winter clothing accessories (mittens, hats, scarves, etc.) through December to donate to families in need.  Need comes in all sizes, so items of any size, color and fabric are welcomed.
