The Sherrard Public Library District is celebrating National Military Appreciation Month by declaring the month of May as a special time to show our active duty military personnel, veterans and reserves from all branches of the military, and their families that we care. On Thursday, May 31 at 6 p.m. we will be creating care packages and crafts to send to soldiers. We will have guest speakers from the Rock Island Arsenal at 7 p.m.

Please stop by the Sherrard Library or the Mobile Branch to donate items to send to our active duty military troops. We will prove a list of items that you can donate online www.sherrardlibrary.org and at our library.

If you have a friend or family member currently serving in a combat zone and would like to suggest they receive a care package please stop by the library and fill out a request form.
