These are made by folding and layering special paper in a way that lets the light shine through when taped onto your window.

Gratitude Project
Come in and write or draw a message of gratitude for something in your life and add it to our line outside. Pick up a stamped postcard to mail to someone you are grateful for. Find a book to read with your kids in celebrating gratitude. We are grateful for you!

Five local libraries – Greensboro Free Library, Jeudevine Memorial, Craftsbury Public Library, the John Woodruff Simpson Memorial Library and the Albany Public Library are offering opportunities for expressing gratitude during December.

Each library will host a gratitude destination, with activities, ideas and books to support practicing gratitude, including a gratitude tree or line to hang colorful fabric with messages of gratitude.

Patrons, community members and visitors are welcome to stop by and write or draw a message; these messages will be on display for view and reflection for folks to acknowledge the good things happening in the community, our families, and the world. It is a way to lift our spirits as head into winter.
