Come in to Laura’s Library before November 11th to create your own veteran scrapbook page! We will provide one 12x12” piece of cardstock, some decorations and supplies; you bring photos of your veteran, a brief biography or list of duties and honors, and any other keepsakes you want to display (medals, letters, etc.). We will have these pages on exhibit starting Monday, November 11th for our Veterans’ Day Celebration.

Please note that physical copies of the information are not guaranteed to be protected while on display or returned after the exhibit. We will happily help you make color copies of any photos so that you may keep your original!
