Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this partly cloudy Tuesday.

The Capital Area District Libraries offer several workshops this week to prepare for Thanksgiving -- no, not Understanding Turkey Preparation or Handling Awkward Family Conversations about Politics 101, but Turkey Day Crafts. Creative kids and families can drop in to make festive decorations while supplies last. There are two today, but check cadl.org for further times.

Drop-in Thanksgiving Crafts. Make a Thanksgiving craft while supplies last. 3-6 p.m. FREE. CADL Aurelius, 1939 S. Aurelius Road, Mason.
