WEEKLY QUOTE  "Give me the end of the year an' its fun When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done; Bring all the wanderers home to the nest, Let me sit down with the ones I love best, Hear the old voices still ringin' with song, See the old faces unblemished by wrong, See the old table with all of its chairs An' I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers." – Edgar A. Guest, English-American poet


LIBRARY CLOSED  The library will be closed this Thursday and Friday, the 24th and 25th, for Thanksgiving, and open as usual on Saturday.  Enjoy the holiday, and if you head out for any Black Friday deals, shop safely!


CHRISTMAS CARDS  Beginning this week, we will set out a table of Christmas cards to be sent to local nursing home residents.  Please consider signing a few (or all) of them the next time you visit the library, and help spread some cheer this holiday season.

REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  There will be an additional Story Time the first two Saturdays in December (the 3rd and the 10th,) also at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help hours will be tonight the 22nd from 6 – 7 PM and next Saturday December 3 from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for the details on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  New this week we have novels by T. C. Boyle, Danielle Steel, Alice Hoffman, and Linwood Barclay.  We’ve also added Jeffrey Archer’s conclusion to his Clifton Chronicles, a new Christmas story from Richard Paul Evans, and a collection of four novellas by Kathy Reichs, part of her Temperance Brennan series.  If you enjoy biographies, our “new” shelves are full.  Selections include: Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys; American Revolutionary hero Francis Marion (the Swamp Fox); Joan Rivers; Alfred Hitchcock; Sigmund Freud; economist Alan Greenspan; Green Bay Packer Brett Favre; Lakota hero and holy man Black Elk; Al Capone; Casanova; and country musician Bill Anderson.  Explore the history of private security agents and detectives in America with Inventing the Pinkertons, sail the seas of the Civil War in Iron Dawn, and look into a hidden aspect of presidential security with Secret Service Dogs.  In the mood for new landscapes?  Travel the byways of London in Vanishing Streets, or learn the secrets of the filmmaker’s craft in On Story.  Finally, if you feel driven to search for intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, check out The Aliens Are Coming for a rundown on our efforts so far.
