Free Program Offered by Local Veteran

U..S. Marine Corps veteran Sgt. Chuck Lewis

A local veteran, Sgt. Chuck Lewis, will offer a free public presentation in the library meeting room on Wednesday, March 4, at 7:00 p.m.

The program will focus on his experiences as related to the highly acclaimed book “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien. Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be served.

Lewis is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran from Ronan.

“The Things They Carried” is a collection of stories about an American platoon in the Vietnam War. It is a classic work of American literature, and is considered one of the finest books of the era. The work is fictional, rather than being a traditional nonfictional historical account.

For more information, please call or stop by the circulation desk.

Adopt a Book for the Library

The library is offering its annual Adopt-a-Book program, an opportunity to “adopt” a children’s book and present it to the library’s collection. The program has been extended through the month of March. Community members can purchase a book to honor a special person or event (birthday, anniversary, etc.) – or to remember a loved one.  Each hardback book is $14. After a book is purchased, a plaque will be inscribed and permanently placed inside. In addition, a special acknowledgement of the sponsored book can be sent to the honoree.  For more information, please stop by the circulation desk.
