Veterans Day is on November 11, and MCPLhas a number or programs and events commemorating this day. Here at the Buckner Branch, we had a couple of special guests visit with our Young Writers' Club @ the Library. Mr. Manley Derrington, a Korean War Veteran and Staff Sergeant Heather Young who served in Afghanistan, shared his experiences and the importance of honoring our Veterans. The children then wrote letters to Veterans that will be sent to the VA Hospital in Kansas City.
