In honor of Veterans Day the Monrovia Public Library is displaying, in its lobby, a banner of honor that local active duty and retired service members can sign and share their service history. Community members are invited to stop by the Library and sign or view the banner. It is just one way the Library recognizes local men and women who are currently serving and have served in the military.
Another way is to encourage the public to use the Library’s Veterans' Resource collection which contains books of interest to returning veterans and their families. This special section includes materials on military to civilian transition, post-traumatic stress, benefits, job search and how families can best help returning veterans. A new library bookmark contains just the book titles that relate to veteran benefits and career information. Ask for the bookmark at the Adult Reference Desk.
