Poppies, turkey ...

... And lots of construction for Bob the Builder fans.

In November please check your calendar before coming to the library.

We will be open Saturday, November 27th. However.

We will be closed on November 11th for Veterans Day (Known as Armistice Day from 1926 to 1954.)
see the
Veterans History Project;
Official Posters;
Today in History entry for 11/11;
Facts and figures about Veterans;
An explanation for why the attempt to make it yet another Monday holiday failed
In Flanders fields the poppies grow

Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame, all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

Wilfred Owen 18931918 Dulce Et Decorum Est

Of the 2.6 million veterans alive in 2000: about 6 million served in WWII; about 4 million served in Korea; more than 8 million served during the Viet Nam years; about 3 million during the 1990-2000 period which includes the Persian Gulf War.

We will also be closed Friday, November 19th because of Community Center construction.

And again we will be closed Thursday, November 25th and Friday, November 26th for Thanksgiving
