PRESS RELEASE

Fauquier County Public Library Honors Area Veterans

(Warrenton, VA) September 27, 2016 — Throughout October, Fauquier County Public Library will accept photos of veterans for its annual “Honoring Our Veterans” display, which will run November 1 – November 26.

The collected photographs form a historical collage that is prominently displayed at all three library locations.

“There is truly no better way to honor these veterans than helping them share their stories and memories with others,” according to Dawn Sowers, Public Services Manager.

If you would like your family’s veterans to be a part of the display, bring scanned copies of photos to any Fauquier library branch. Library staff is also available to scan original photos upon request.

Each photo will be accompanied by a caption identifying the veteran, the year and location of the photo if available, and the relationship and name of the person submitting the photo. Photos submitted in prior years will automatically be included in this year’s display.

The libraries will also display a “white table” to honor American veterans. The display will be at all library locations November 7 – 13.  White tables are modeled after the table in the children’s book America’s White Table, written by Margot Theis Raven and illustrated by Mike Benny, and by the thousands of white tables set up all over the world in memory and honor of American service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the line of duty.

The Fauquier County Public Library’s “Honoring Our Veterans” program is a recipient of the Outstanding Adult Program award from the Virginia Public Library Directors Association.

Call (540) 422-8500, ext. 6862 for more information about submitting your photos.
