Many of you will be working on GRCC assignments during the Thanksgiving Holiday. Your GRCC Librarians will be answering Ask-a-Librarian questions exclusively from Tuesday Nov. 24 through Sunday Nov. 29. The answers might come back a little slower than usual (hey – we’re on holiday break, too!) but you’ll get answers!
Friday the 13th sure seems like a strange date to honor the concept of World Kindness – but here we are – it’s 2020, there’s a pandemic AND we’ve suffered through a contentious election year. We can all use more kindness! For some ideas on how, read CNN’s post with 25 great (and easy) ways to practice kindness.
Or, try this 2016 eBook by Dr. Philip C. Watkins – Positive Psychology 101 that gives the background to why being positive and kind is not only good for others, but it’s good for you, too. GRCC has unlimited access to that book when you logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.

For the first time since 1944, people world-wide will be able to see a blue moon on October 31st – Halloween. “The next full moon on Halloween that will be visible worldwide is expected in 2077, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.” Blue moons are, sadly, not actually blue, and refer to the occurrence of a second full moon during one month.
With the surge in Covid cases, we’re all looking for alternate ways to mark this holiday safely. Why not moon-gaze in your back yard?
