Memorial Day 2017

The Library is closed all day today in celebration of Memorial Day.

There are those who survived service in World War II, but they are now in their late 80s and 90s. Of the 16 million who served, there are 620,000 remaining. Our veterans are dying at the rate of about 372 a day! With approximately 3,600 WW II vets left in New Hampshire, it means the number to be remembered on each Memorial Day will continue to grow.

If you're in the Boscawen area you may wish to visit the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery and pay homage to those who served our country.
