Today is Veteran’s Day. This is the day to honor all of our men and women who have served in the armed forces. President Obama will lay a wreath during a special ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia to honor all those who have died in service to America.
Please check out our special display of books and DVDs in the Children’s Department to honor our veterans and to find out more information about this important day.

The American Hero
by Roger Robicheau
The American Hero always comes through
Some proudly are soldiers who march in harm’s way
While others come forth as civilians so brave
We should always keep clear a place in our heart
Their duty to country will not be surpassed
We live in a world which can be hard to bear
Do ponder new heroes and what they will face
Our heritage brings out the best, we all know
Happy Reading! Donna
