The West Nyack Free Library is planning a program on Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. to support soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. The program is called “Operation Home Front” and it encourages people to get involved in two programs sponsored by the United Service Organization. There’s Operation Phone Home, which distributes free phone cards to members of the armed forces, and United Through Reading, in which soldiers read a children’s book, record it on a DVD and send it to a child.
Veterans and current members of the armed forces will speak at the event about how the public can get involved. For more information, call the library at 845-358-6081.
