Library Display Honors U.S. Veterans

November 11th is Veterans' Day. In celebration, the LINC has a month long display of "Our Heros" - When and Where They Served. Come by and check out where our staff, their fathers, brothers, sons, and uncles served their country. If you would like to add one of your own heros to the display -- please contact the LINC staff and we would be happy to include them. P.S. Women welcome. (Hunter)
