A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is the 10th prime-time animated TV special based upon the popular comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. It was originally aired on the CBS network on November 20, 1973, and won an Emmy Award the following year.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving runs 30 minutes and is rated G.

The library will also hold a Thanksgiving Storytime and Crafts event the week before Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 21. 

The event, for children up to pre-kindergarten age, begins at 10:30 a.m.

Much like the Halloween event, the storytime and crafts will give those little ones who aren’t in school the opportunity to learn about the library, the holiday and create something.

For Thanksgiving, according to Librarian Bernie Sarver, children can expect to hear a few stories about Thanksgiving, learn about being thankful a simple turkey craft for all the ages.
