Wake County residents are invited to show their appreciation to local military veterans at any Wake County public library, now through Feb. 5. Library visitors of all ages are encouraged to use the materials at the libraries' craft tables to design Valentine's Day cards for men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
The completed valentines will be delivered to the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center for delivery to veterans just prior to Valentine's Day.
Every year, groups and organizations across the country participate in Valentines for Veterans. In 2016, more than 5,200 valentines from library patrons were distributed to the Durham VA Medical Center.
For more information, contact Sarah Kramer or Megan Roberts, youth services managers and WCPL teen coordinators.
