It’s November and we have much to be thankful for.  Stop by to see our displays celebrating Native American Heritage Month and honoring our military with a Veteran’s Day salute. 

Also, we dare you not to “Fall for a First Line” of a book featured on our library bulletin board display and preview the titles falling from our “Thankful for New Books” tree.  Check it out!

REMINDER: Your Holland Hall  six digit ID number on your lunch card may be used to gain remote access to the online databases and Overdrive.
