Both branches of the Kirkwood Community College Library will be closed for Memorial Day.

Eggbert Saluting

Today we are sharing titles that have entered our collection this year that have to do with men and women of our armed forces in honor of Memorial Day, a national day of mourning to honor our war dead and salute our living heroes.

These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
