Happy Veteran’s Day from the Book-a-Day Blog

All Wake County Libraries are closed in celebration of Veteran’s Day and all those who have served this country.   In honor of Veteran’s Day, we offer  reading lists such as Civil War Novels, World War II Fiction and World War II Non-Fiction, and the following inspirational quotes from some of our favorite authors:

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
~Mark Twain

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
~Joseph Campbell

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
~Maya Angelou

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. ~Cynthia Ozick
