While November can be full of beauty – as the leaves fall from the trees, creating a gorgeous Fall landscape – it is also the time of year when things start to become chilly. November is also the host month for many celebrations! Other than being the month of Thanksgiving, it is also officially American Indian Heritage Month, and Good Nutrition Month – though by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, the latter of these two themes might fall by the wayside! Oddly, November is also National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month in the US. Quite how well that goes down with turkey, we’re not sure we want to know!
DID YOU KNOW?
The heaviest turkey in the world weighed in at a whopping 86 pounds. That's right!
The turkey even had a name - Tyson - He was raised in Peterborough, United Kingdom by Philip Cook of Leacroft Turkeys Ltd.
After 12 years of dedicated service to the City of Troy, Diana Buzga has decided to fully retire as the City’s Deputy Clerk. Diana’s hard work and diligence will be sorely missed and we wish her all the best in her new endeavors which we know she will embrace wholeheartedly.
Therefore, the City of Troy now has an opening for a part-time Deputy Clerk position. Further information and applications can be found on our website at www.troyidaho.net or picked up at City Hall.
Did you know Idaho Family Reading Week (FRW) is in November? To celebrate FRW, the Troy Library will have a reading-themed to-go craft for all ages. The bookish craft will be available starting November 15th. The library will also be giving away FREE books to kids (0-14 years old) the last two weeks of November, to celebrate FRW and encourage reading. The books have been generously provided by the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICFL).
The November STEAM Take-away Activity is geodes. The STEAM activity will be available starting on November 8th. These activities are geared towards elementary-age kiddos. Supplies are limited, to-go activities are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have questions about anything happening at the library this month, please call Michelle Sturdy at 208-835-4311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
