Happy Thanksgiving! We are grateful to serve the community of Midlothian, and this season reminds me of how lucky we are to have such enthusiastic library supporters. How can we help make your holiday celebrations a little more special? Do you need cookbooks, table decorating ideas, or picture books for grandparents to read aloud to the grandkids? We’ve got family movies, inspirational poetry to share, and e-books or audio books for those long car rides, “Over the river and through the woods!” Our family-friendly atmosphere at the library is a perfect intergenerational outing if you have cabin fever, so stop on by and “Fall into a Good Book!” --Heather
