From the Archives: Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is almost here, and we would like to give thanks to all who have taken part in one of the Library Foundation’s educational or cultural programs over the last 20 years. To keep you company as you hunker down in the kitchen this week, here’s a selection of free podcasts from our ALOUD archives that reflect on themes of gratitude. And if you want to get a jumpstart on your gift giving this season, consider our commemorative USB drive, which has over 20 hours of audio podcasts from some of ALOUD’s most memorable programs, now available from the Library Store.
