Please note that the Library will be closed on Sunday, November 11, 2012 for Remembrance Day. Will you be attending one of the city’s Remembrance Day ceremonies? Here is a link to ceremonies taking place across the city:
My grandfather is a World War II veteran, so Remembrance Day always has special meaning for me and my family. My grandpa was a Flight Sergeant with Squadron 412 of the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1939-1945. He has a brick in his name at Juno Beach, and in 2009 he appeared in a documentary about Canada’s veterans, called Canada Remembers, where he was one of five WWII veterans interviewed. He just celebrated his 91st birthday in Saskatoon last month!
Come into the Library for books, DVDs, magazine articles, and electronic resources about Remembrance Day, previous wars, conflicts and peacekeeping missions. Whether it’s information, a memoir, historical fiction, war poetry, or children’s material you’re looking for, we can help you find it.
