Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I thought I would share some Thanksgiving books from years past. You can link to the original post at the title. My personal favorite is the last one because of the truly awful illustrations.
I wish I had something super inspirational to say about the holiday, but I am tapped out on inspiration at the moment. However, I am hopeful.
Currently, my library is rolling back to curbside only, so we only have virtual service right now. I have always liked working the desk on the holiday weekend. I will miss my traditional Thanksgiving weekend library questions and comments.
- First year college students showing up on the Saturday and Sunday following the holiday telling me that they couldn’t stand 5 more minutes of parental interference.
- Some guy asking me if I have tax forms in yet. Sometimes I also get the optional follow ups:
-Are there forms “in the back?”
-Are we “hiding” the forms?
-Did I know that income tax is unconstitutional? Usually this is followed by a discussion citing the 1st, 4th, and/or 5th amendment.
Ah, the good old days.
Stay safe, wear a mask, and wash your hands. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
