Ever since the Vietnam War, a White Table has been set across America in mess halls and at military events to honor America's Armed Forces, especially those missing in action and held prisoner of war. Here's our version of the #WhiteTable. 🇺🇲️🌹 pic.twitter.com/tWjD2U1qCs

Our patrons had a difficult time voting for their favorites in each of the different categories. We had so many entries in the age 12 & under category (and no entries in the age 13-18 age category), that we awarded an extra prize in the age 12 & under category.
Prize winners may stop by our front desk and pick up their prizes. Thank-you to everyone who participated!🤩

We’d like to fix you up with a BLIND DATE (with a book of course); after all we are a library! We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in plain brown paper (no peeking) and you won’t know the “identity” of your blind date until you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction, a mystery, biography, or a cookbook? Funny, heart-breaking or informative? Each book will have a “Rate Your Date” slip. #BlindDateWithaBook
