Thanksgiving Holiday

For the Thanksgiving Holiday
the Library will be closed
Thursday, November 26th - Monday November 30th

We wish you all a
Happy Thanksgiving

Today, today, today. Bless us...
and help us grow.
From the Rosh Hashanah Liturgy

May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within. May the blessed sunshine shine on you and warm your heart till it glows like a great peat fire, so that the stranger may come and warm himself at it, and also a friend. -Traditional Irish Blessing

Gratitude is heaven itself.
-William Blake

Give us thankful this the season of Thy Thanksgiving. May we be thankful for health and strength, for sun and rain and peace. Let us seize the day and the opportunity and strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities.... - W.E.B. Du Bois.

Round the table
Peace and joy prevail
May all who share
this season's delight
enjoy countless more.
-Chinese Blessing-
