It's the week of Thanksgiving! I know most of you are headed out to see family and friends. I have plans for Thanksgiving too! Me and my animal library friends — the giraffes, the Monkeys, the armadillo, and all the others — are going to have a great big Thanksgiving here at the library. We're going to raid the staff fridge, and then we'll play some video games and watch a movie on the big screen in the Community room. Of course, this is a secret from all the librarians, so don't tell anyone! I told you because I like you!
That reminds me. At Thanksgiving you're supposed to think about what you are thankful for. I'm thankful for all of you! You always make my day when you come into the library and say "Hi!" And I'm thankful for the library for giving me this great job and feeding me with cookies. What are you thankful for? Let me know — respond to the blog!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving whatever your plans are!
I have been try to put a CD on hold (Kiss & Tell Selena Gomez) for the last 15 minutes. I can login to your site; but, every time I enter my name and library card number to request the hold for the CD, I get an error box. It's driving me nuts! I have tried every option. I know my name and have my library number memorized. Can you put the CD on hold for me? And, then tell me what's going on? Thank You!

Breaking through the glass counter
Start your own business today and become recession-proof.
As Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields created their new Rodan + Fields skincare products to extend their vision of bringing dermatology-based skin treatment to everyone, they were immediately courted by leading prestige retailers. And while the doctors almost immediately found themselves with a leading dermatologist brand in top tier department stores, they quickly realized their vision could never be fully realized when kept under glass.
In an unprecedented move, Rodan + Fields became the first prestige skincare line to exit the department store for the world of direct selling.
A direct selling opportunity with a four star reputation
The Rodan + Fields business opportunity boasts a brand report card unlike any other. Inherent in the Rodan + Fields direct selling brand is the reputation of two of the most highly regarded leaders in the world of skincare. Their track record among their dermatology peers, as skincare product developers, and as opinion leaders in the beauty press are all part of the assets that work to support Rodan + Fields Consultants as they set forth to introduce others to the benefits of the products, the product-support programs, and the potential lifestyle benefits of the business opportunity.

HSHV will be given the award on Tuesday, October 27th during the regularly scheduled township meeting at 7:00 pm. Guests and HSHV supporters are welcome to attend.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) sponsors National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week each year.

“We are honored that Canton is celebrating this event and HSHV in particular,” said Tanya Hilgendorf, HSHV Executive Director. “Animal shelters serve their communities in many ways, perhaps most importantly: animal shelters provide a tangible example of humane ethics and compassion for all living creatures. Canton Township is filled with many wonderful animal lovers and we are glad to be their community animal shelter where homeless, lost and abused animals are taken.”
To support HSHV, your local animal shelter, there are many things you can do:
