THANKFUL FOR BOOKS/BOOK SALE!

Thanksgiving, a celebration of gratitude, is almost upon us.  During this time, many people volunteer in kitchens and food pantries as an offering of service, but did you know there's another way you can give back to your community?  You can attend the Friends of Crosby Branch Library's Holiday Book Sale!  That's right; you actually give back to your community while purchasing books, dvds, and cds, at bargain prices, because all proceeds directly benefit the Crosby Library.  These items make great gifts, too!  The sale will be held on Friday and Saturday, December 2nd and 3rd, at the library, during our normal hours.  We hope to see you there, and thank you for your service!

BEING FRUITFUL

A long time ago, I started a vegetable gardening project with a group of women.  Since there was no water nearby, the way we tended our individual plots was to draw water from an open well, and carry one bucket-full at a time to where the plants were.  Then, using a cup, each precious drop of liquid was meted out onto the soil immediately surrounding the seedlings.  This was a lot of work!  How much easier it would have been, if we had access to a faucet and a length of hose!
