The Hoover Public Library, in conjunction with the City of Hoover, will hold a week-long salute to those serving our country from Nov. 4-11.
The celebration begins Nov. 4 with a reception at the library. Monday, Nov. 5, there will be two showings of a movie based on the Vietnam War.
Nov. 8, there will be a World War II program based on Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.
Each day from Nov. 5-9, Hoover scout troops will honor veterans at 4:45 p.m. with a flag folding ceremony in front of the library. Nov. 5-8 and Nov. 10, children can receive a flag during story time programs and make crafts for veterans at the VA medical center. Children may also participate in a “Thank-A-Vet” poster contest.
Also, patrons may visit the patriotic art show presented by artists of the Exceptional Foundation and submit a photograph of a veteran to be placed on the memorial Wall of Honor in the library’s main corridor.
