In honor of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, Kirkwood Library Services would like to honor those that served with a list of titles that have come in over the last year that have to do with veterans, military service, and stories and histories from America’s wars. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
