In the Stacks: Picture Books

Seeing as though November is Picture Book Month, an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book, and the fact that the HGTC Library Easy or picture book collection is so extensive, we thought it might be nice to highlight a few titles.

Here’s a few that you may wish to check out over the Thanksgiving Break.

SPECIAL EVENT: Therapy dogs, courtesy of Canine Angels, will be available at all three HGTC Libraries. Stop by and pet a furry friend! Puppies are softer than study carrels.

Remember: Studies show that taking regular breaks can help concentration and increase productivity, especially if you let yourself relax during the break. Amidst all of the stress, we hope you get a chance to relax this week, and as always, let any library staff member know if there is something we can do to help you finish your work!
