As Thanksgiving is fast approaching, it reminds me to reflect on my nation, state, community, friends, coworkers and family. I usually do not have any trouble finding several items to be thankful for. My difficulty comes in turning the events that have been effecting all of us, the aftermath of the election, the forest fires in the western part of our state, the flooding from Hurricane Matthew etc., into items to be thankful for as well.
While pondering these events I realize I am very thankful to live in the wonderful town of Havelock. We are reminded daily how many of our neighbors have dedicated their lives in support of our nation through their service to our country, past and present. Every time I go to the library and a plane flies over with its deafening roar, I am reminded of this fact. We are extremely lucky to have such a well equipped library and really compassionate staff trying to make our community just a little bit better not only by lending books, magazines and dvd’s but also by being there to answer questions about computers, elections, forest fires, and flooding. The staff is always there to help in any way possible to assist you in getting the information you need on a variety of subjects. I am also thankful for our patrons who are supportive of our Library and the various programs that are scheduled for fun and enjoyment. So the next time you are in town, stop by the Havelock – Craven County Public Library just to say Hi and thank you.
As a reminder, The Havelock-Craven County Library will be closed on Thursday, November 24, Friday, November 25, and Saturday, November 26, 2016 in order to observe the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Library will reopen on Monday, November 28, 2016 at the regular time, 10:00 am.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday from the staff of your local library!
