Local Libraries Collaborate on The Gratitude Project

NORTHEAST KINGDOM – The Jeudevine Memorial Library in Hardwick, the Greensboro Free Library, Craftsbury Public Library, the John Woodruff Simpson Memorial Library in East Craftsbury, and the Albany Public Library will be offering opportunities for expressing gratitude during the month of November. 

Each library will have stamped postcards to use to send a note of thanks to friends and family. Pieces of fabric will be available to write on feelings of gratitude. The fabric will be hung in each library.

Throughout the month, each library will host a gratitude destination, with activities, ideas, and books to support practicing gratitude.

This project was born out of a conversation about Lapher Public Librarian Amy Olsen’s Wishtree project, where she created a Wishing Tree at her library inspired by the book “Wishtree” by Katherine Applegate.
