History Project

In honor of all those who have served in our nation’s military, the Library is documenting and preserving the history of our local veterans.

Through video interviews, staff will sit down with willing veterans to discuss their experiences while fighting to defend our country’s various conflicts. Please contact the Library for more information if you would like to participate in the project.
