December Monthly Highlight: Honoring the United States Military

The library staff will honor active duty and veterans with An All-American Christmas/Jazz Night.

Giving Back to Disabled Veterans
In 2013, the library staff began hosting An All-American Christmas/Jazz Night to honor the military during the Christmas season. Last year we campaigned for 1,000 letter to go overseas to deployed troops. The library was able to mail over 1,500 letters to the deployed soldiers.
This year our vision is to assist the K. J. Eyer, Jr. Chapter 64 of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) in raising money to purchase a new van. This van will provide transportation to veterans locally and in the Albemarle region to the Veterans Administration medical facilities in North Carolina and Virginia. Please express your gratitude to our disabled veterans by giving a tax-deductible donation. You can drop off you donation at the library or bring your donation to the All-American Christmas/Jazz Night. We will present Commander Jimmy Rouse and the K. J. Eyer, Jr. Chapter 64 with the donation at the program. Please make checks payable to: DAV Chapter 64
