Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, Shaw Library has brought out our Thankfulness Tree. We invite the Shaw kids to think about what they're thankful for, write it on a colorful leaf, then add it to the tree! Whether it's big or small, serious or silly, we want to read about what makes your life easier, more special, or just more fun.
Hello everyone!

Q: What are you reading now?
Come join us on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. for a fun-filled night of teen Halloween festivities.Crafts and snacks will be available, and we will be showing a Halloween-themed film starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.
This month, we're giving our fans what they really want: answers! We've gotten so many questions from the kids at Shaw that we convinced the librarians to put out a question box so our many admirers could get all their questions in without pushing, shoving, or shouting. Each day, the librarians read us the question of the day, and our thoughtful answers are recorded for posterity (or at least the rest of the day) on our chalkboard.
