The Copperas Cove Public Library will remain closed today and Saturday in observance of Thanksgiving, giving staff and volunteers time to spend with their families and loved ones.

Hopefully all the readers in Copperas Cove picked up something — or multiple somethings — to get them through the library’s down time. Even if they didn’t, however, the library will open its doors Monday like usual, allowing readers to pick up something new off the shelves.

There are also events taking place at the library the final week of November, giving residents plenty of reason to visit the library and see what it offers.

On Monday, the events at the library will kick off with Toddler Time at 10 a.m. with children reading and learning about bears.

After reading time, the library will offer E-book help from 2 to 3 p.m. The help is for people looking to get started with e-readers, and the library staff teaches users how to check out and access digital books from the library.

As the day turns into night, the Double C Square Dancing class will be offering square dancing lessons from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The lessons are open to the public and are a weekly preparation for the bi-monthly dances the group hosts every other Friday at the library.

Also, for people just looking for their next good read, the library has added several new books to the bookshelves recently.

Some of the new books include:

  • “Stream­punks: YouTube and the Rebel­s Re­mak­ing ­Me­dia,” by Robert Kyncl with Maany Peyvan.
  • “High Per­for­mance Habit­s: How Ex­traor­di­nary Peo­ple Be­come That Way,” by Brendon Burchard.
  • “Beyond Fort North,” by Peter Dawson.
  • “Always Close to Home,” by Jerry S. Eicher.
