Books and Beyond: Community Read Program

Wednesday, September 1, 2021

Join the Books & Beyond: Community Read Program starting in September and lasting through November. The goal of the program is to foster the love of reading and community bonding. From September through November, the community is invited to read the World War II historical fiction novel "Sisters in Arms" by Kaia Alderson. This novel follows the lives of two young African American women who help form the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion. The reader will follow their journey as they go through boot camp, then finally make it overseas to England and France. During the month of November our library will create a special display in the locked cases in the lobby highlighting women veteran military memorabilia from the community. Additional books and videos in the library's collection that highlight women veterans will also be available for further reading and viewing. Check the November calendar for additional information as the program gears up that month.
