Giving Thanks

I love this activity not only because it shows how gratitude is expressed in the Iroquois culture, but also because it emphasizes that we can all be grateful for so many things–not just on Thanksgiving, but every day.

Veterans Day

When we talk about Veterans Day in the library, we focus not on war or violence or politics, but on people–people with families, people with feelings, people with difficult jobs that require determination and patriotism and bravery beyond anything I can imagine.
