Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving! The past year and a half have brought trying times, which makes taking a moment to give thanks an exercise in hopefulness. Here’s to hoping we’re in an even better place by this time next year! If you wish to do some reading (it is the blog, after all) about gratitude, check out these lists: adult fiction, adult nonfiction, and for children and teens.
We would like to take a minute to express our gratitude to you, our loyal Chapter Chats readers. We, along with many colleagues here at the library, began this enterprise shortly after the pandemic struck. We were working from home and not very sure how it was all going to work out. We have now surpassed 230 entries that have spanned reviews of books, movies, and online resources, classes and events, and other library news. Thank you for sticking with us!
HCLS is open again now, as you surely know, and our statistics are once again proving why we rate as a 5-Star Library. We reopen the Glenwood Branch in a little over a week on Dec 4, and we hope to see you there and at any of the other branches soon.
On behalf of all the HCLS staff who write for Chapter Chats, enjoy your celebrations this holiday season with family, friends, and loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving!
