Libraries Collect for Vets During May

List of Needed Items Available @ Your Library or Online

Memorial Day, which will be observed on May 27, is often thought of as the beginning of the summer season, but the real meaning of the holiday is to remember those who gave their lives for our country. We should also use the occasion to remember and thank men and women still alive who have served in the military. During the month of May, Lackawanna County libraries are collecting items needed by veterans who reside at the Gino Merli Veterans Center in Scranton.

Stop by any Library to see a list of things they need. The list can also be found on theĀ Merli Center website. Then make Memorial Day meaningful with your contribution to our vets.
