Library Seeks Photos to Honor Veterans

For the third consecutive year, Fauquier County Public Library is seeking photos of area veterans for the “Honoring Our Veterans” display, which will run November 3 – November 28, 2014 at all library locations.

Photos will be collected throughout October and will form a historical collage that is prominently displayed at all three library locations

To include your family's veteran in the display, bring scanned copies of photos to any Fauquier library branch. Library staff is also available to scan original photos upon request. 

Each photo will be accompanied by a caption identifying the veteran, the year and location of the photo if available, and the relationship and name of the person submitting the photo. Other interesting facts may be included. 

Photos from past displays are available here

The libraries will also display a “white table” to honor American veterans in November. White tables are modeled after the table in the children's book America's White Table, written by Margot Theis Raven and illustrated by Mike Benny, and by the thousands of white tables set up all over the world in memory and honor of American service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the line of duty. 

The Fauquier County Public Library’s “Honoring Our Veterans” program is the 2012 recipient of the Outstanding Adult Program award from the Virginia Public Library Directors Association.
