We had the teen volunteer orientation for the Syosset Library’s participation in the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress this week.
If you haven’t heard of this facinating endeavor, check out the link here:
We need mature and responsible teens in grades 10-12 to participate as interviewers for this project, and if you are interested but weren’t able to attend the orientation, there is still time to get the materials and help out with the Veterans History Project Kick Off reception we are having at the library on Saturday, May 19 from 11-1 PM. In fact, feel free to stop by on May 19 to pick up the materials and learn about the project then if you can’t make it before.
We are hoping to get a number of interested veterans – from any of the U.S. wars or conflicts – to share their stories with us.
We need help form the community to do so. If you have family, grandparents, neighbors, older siblings, etc., please mention the Veterans History Project to them and invite them to the library on May 19. May 19 is Armed Forces Day, and we couldn’t think of a better way to help honor and celebrate our veterans than by letting them share their stories so that all can remember.
