Cooper Library will receive the fifth book in the
series of WWII memoirs from Veterans program
The Friends of the Cooper Memorial Library Veteran's History Project Committee will host a Veteran's Memorial Program and Book Unveiling on Thursday, May 21, at 5pm in room 108. This program is a joint effort between the Friends of the Cooper Memorial Library Veteran's History Project and the Lake County Library System.
The program will include the book unveiling and signing of the fifth volume of Memoirs of Veterans of South Lake County: Korean War and WW II Veterans, as well as a DVD presentation to our veterans from Florida Congressman Daniel Webster.
"In the past, these programs have deeply touched those in attendance and we expect this program will do the same," Dennis Smolarek, research librarian at Cooper Memorial Library, observed. "We encourage everyone to attend and feel free to bring a friend." The library will serve light refreshments as part of this program. Please call the library at 352-536-2275 for more information about this and other programs and special events at Cooper Memorial Library. The library is located at 2525 Oakley Seaver Drive in Clermont.
