"In a world of abrupt, hastily typed e-mails and instant messages, the art of pen-and-paper note writing may seem lost, yet nothing else says “thank you” with quite the same elegance or sincerity. Now you will never again struggle to find the right words for that beautifully penned message." - Syndetics
AFPL also has several manners books for kids including: The thank you book for kids : hundreds of creative, cool, and clever ways to say thank you! , Teen manners : from malls to meals to messaging and beyond, and Moxy Maxwell does not love writing thank-you notes.

Reading for pleasure improves literacy, improves employability, social interaction, and can have a positive effect on mental health. Book readers are more likely to participate in positive activities such as volunteering, attending cultural events, and even physical exercise.

#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a day of giving at the start of the holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations across the United States and around the world.
Cookies came to America in the 17th century, although the name "koekje" ("little cake") arrived later with the Dutch. Popular early American cookies were macaroons, gingerbread cookies, and jumbles.
18 December is "Bake Cookies Day" but you'll probably want to start baking before then for holiday parties, cookie exchanges, and gifts. Ocee Branch has a nice selection of cookie recipe books in both the adult and kids' sections. Begin a holiday baking tradition or discover a new favorite cookie!
Classes continue 21 December, 4 & 18 January, 1 & 15 February.
