I am thankful that all of my children and grandchildren will be gathered at my house for the holidays. As a parent, I spent a great deal of happy time reading to the children at bedtime especially. Those experiences are still the norm according to my unscientific survey of usage in the children’s department. Over 1,000 children signed up for summer reading and that means that at least that many parents, grandparents, caregivers brought children to the library and checked out books. Makes one thankful that some things never change.
