Turkey Tales to Tell

Members of Santa Clara City Library came to the Youth Services desk to tell their tales of things they were thankful for this year, and we would like to share some with you! We had some great entries...
...and some awesome artwork, too. 
Ladies and gentlemen, the Top 10 Things That You Are Thankful For in 2013:

#10. Teachers and Libraries- both TIED!

#9. Dad

#8. Puppies/Dogs, Libraries and Life- all TIED!

#7. Mom

#6. Parents

#5. Reading

#4. Friends

#3. Food

#2. Family
And the number #1 Thing That You Are Thankful For isBOOKS!  Books beat out Family by 29 votes!
 We also had a few entries which were stories. Here is a story about a Turkey named Sarah:
“Sarah loves to sing. She has the sweetest voice of an angel. One day, she was singing near her home- and a farmer that had come to collect a turkey for Thanksgiving heard her! He was really amazed that she had such a great voice. He called American Idol and asked if they would accept ANYONE to come and sing on stage. They said, yes! So the farmer caught Sarah, and took her to the American Idol audition. Sarah won every round. And she won American Idol! She is now famous around the world.”
Thank you to all who contributed to our turkey. Remember, the Santa Clara City Library will be closed November 28th and 29th for the holiday, but we will return with normal library hours on Saturday, November 30th. Storytimes will resume on the week of December 3rd. You can also check our Kids Calendar.
Cheers and Happy Holidays!
