SALISBURY — Rowan Public Library invites Vietnam veterans to share their stories, memories and photographs during the library system’s third collection day on Saturday at the South Rowan Regional Library in China Grove from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
“Through a Soldier’s Eyes” is a collaborative project between Rowan Public Library and Waterworks Visual Arts Center to honor and illustrate the Vietnam experiences of Rowan County servicemen and women. Photographs and oral histories collected at the library will culminate in a photography exhibit at Waterworks in August.
The library invites community members to participate by sharing memories and photographs from their service in Vietnam. Participants can share their stories with a library staff member, who will also collect photographs chronicling the veterans’experiences while serving in Vietnam.
Veterans’ stories will be archived as oral histories and kept at the Edith M. Clark History Room of Rowan Public Library. The library will copy veterans’ photographs and archive them in the library’s collection. There are also plans to share this information with the national Veterans Memorial Project.
There will be additional opportunities to participate, including May 7 at the East Branch in Rockwell from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and again May 27 and May 28 at the headquarters location in Salisbury from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A self-service sound booth is also available for veterans at the Salisbury library during regular library hours.
The exhibit at Waterworks will run from Aug. 20 through Nov. 19, with a public opening reception on Friday, Aug. 26 from 6-8 p.m.
For more information, contact Paul Birkhead at Rowan Public Library at 704-216-7841.
