Things to be thankful for

Here’s a short list of things we’re thankful for this year:

  • people who donate books to the library book sales
  • people who buy books at our book sales to support the library
  • volunteers, like the Hillside Gardeners who maintain the library grounds and the teens who helped with the summer reading program
  • the fact that no Oakland libraries were permanently closed this year
  • our sweet little library and the staff who work so hard to make it function

The Montclair branch will be closed this Thursday 11/24 and Friday 11/25 for Thanksgiving, plus Saturday 11/26 for the budget shortage.  Add in the regular Sunday and Monday closures, and we’ll see you back Tuesday 11/29.

The branch is open till 5:30 tonight, so you have a few more hours to snag some holiday reading, like Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie Markes, Trucksgiving by Jon Scieszka, It’s Thanksgiving! by Jack Prelutsky or Thanksgiving Is by Gail Gibbons.  Grown-ups might enjoy Sarah Vowell’s funny and enlightening cultural profile of Puritan life, The Wordy Shipmates.

Happy Thanksgiving!
