Thanksgiving Week Information!

 There are a lot of things going on this year that was unexpected. Rather than focus on that, let's focus on the positive!

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are - Mason Cooley

We are thankful for our patrons. While the coming and going traffic may look a bit different than before, we are still seeing most of our community. And we are glad.

We are thankful that our community has helped us with reaching our patrons. We now have our online catalog and our website that is accessible. We could not have done that without donations and support.

We are thankful for our parents and grandparents that come in and not only get the Take and Make crafts for the kids, they also are encouraging the children to read. We are bias, but we feel that literacy is very important for all people.

We are thankful we have been able to continue adding books to our collection.

We are thankful that we celebrated our 11th anniversary this year.

Plenty to be thankful for!

What are you thankful for? Tell us in the comments!

This week (November 23-28) we are closed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday so that our staff and volunteers can catch up on their reading lists. (*wink*)

We can take reserve requests Monday and Tuesday for Wednesday pickup. (Have your library card and check out our online library cat.jwlwhitebluff.com)

We also have a few of the Take and Make crafts left.

Thanksgiving week hours of operation. We are closed November 26,27, & 28

Veterans Day

Please note that in observance of Veterans Day, the Jennie Woodworth Library is closed.

In the United States of America, Veterans Day is observed on November 11th. This day is held to honor military veterans that have served specifically in the United States Armed Forces.

Honoring all who have served this Veteran's Day

Veterans Day coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day. Armistice Day is  to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compi├Ęgne, France at 5:45 am, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day owing to the tradition of the remembrance poppy) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. It was inaugurated by King George V in 1919.

Once we see that November 11th is a honored day and why, we can understand why many of the observances are for all military active, inactive, or no longer with us.
