Honoring Veterans

Mr. Paul Petry_WWII vet fall 2017

We are honoring veterans by highlighting all of our military fiction and non-fiction in book displays around the library. Paul Petry, a surviving WWII Army veteran living in Heyworth, has a display of his mementos and memories of his time of service to our country. Mr. Petry reported for active duty in May of 1945 at Fort Sill in Oklahoma and went on to a tour of duty in France. Thank you to all who have served and are serving our country protecting our freedoms.

The library will be closed to honor Veterans’ Day on Friday, November 10.
