Honoring Veterans and Giving Thanks

“We have so much to be thankful for.  One day a year hardly seems adequate…” - Anonymous

This quote means so much and is a special reminder for me when celebrating Thanksgiving.  And on behalf of Wilkes County Public Library staff, we are especially grateful for all the community partners and Library Friends who contribute to making our library a place where everyone can be empowered and inspired. 

We would also like to recognize all the veterans in our community and extend a special thank-you for their service.  In honor of Veterans Day, the library’s community room is showcasing a photography exhibit by Martin Tucker, Vietnam veteran and photojournalist.  Stop in the library through the month of November and see Vietnam photographs brought home by North Carolina Veterans.
