Muldrow Library Hosts Our Vietnam Scrapbook

In honor of the service of Vietnam Veterans, the Muldrow Public Library is hosting an exhibit called Our Vietnam Scrapbook.

“More than a dozen Vietnam-era veterans and their families have shared the snapshots and memorabilia that they sent home” said Librarian Bethia Owens. “The photos are snapshots not of the war but of the soldier’s lives at bases or on ships during the Vietnam War. Some of the stories are humorous, many others are tragic.” 

In honor of all veterans, the library and the Friends of the Muldrow Public Library invite the public to attend the open house and reception on March 5 in the library. The doors will open at 1 p.m. for viewing the exhibit. At 2 p.m. a ceremony will be held in honor those veterans in attendance and those veterans who gave all for our country.

Our Vietnam Scrapbook is a “Revolution: from Pages to Change 2017 Project” sponsored by the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System.

Owens said, “Words and pages are not only the record of the past and the present but the hope of the future.”

The Muldrow Public Library, a branch of the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System, is located at 711 W. Shawntel Smith Blvd. in Muldrow.

For more information contact the library at 918-427-6703.
