Fauquier County Public Library

Library seeks photos of local veterans and service members

Photo collage of service membersEach fall, in honor of Veterans Day, Fauquier County Public Library displays a photo collage “Honoring Our Veterans.”  The photo tribute has grown to include over 200 photos of veterans and men and women currently serving in the armed services.

If you would like your family member or loved one included in the display, bring your photo to any library location and complete a photo submission form. Photos will be scanned by library staff.  Each photo will be accompanied by a caption identifying the veteran, the year and location of the photo 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 collage of photos will be on display at all three library locations. The libraries will also display a “white table” in memory and honor of American service members fallen, missing or held captive in the line of duty. White tables are modeled after the one in the children’s book America’s White Table by Margot Theis Raven and illustrated by Mike Benny. Thousands of white tables are set up all over the world each year in tribute to those who served in America’s Armed Forces.
