Photographer Michael Sahaida's exhibit "Forgotten Soldiers: Veterans of the Korean War" is on display at the library. It features interviews and portraits from 20 veterans from Southwestern Pennsylvania who served in the Korean War. It is an intimate look into their lives, told in their own words, from growing up in the shadow of the depression and World War II, to service in Korea, and returning home to build a life postponed by war. The Korean War is often referred to as “The Forgotten War.”  The goal is to give the generations of people that grew up in relative peace an insight into this terrible war through the stories of these 20 men whose lives were forever impacted by the experiences they carry with them every day. Lately, North Korea has been very prominent in the news, perhaps giving citizens the opportunity to think more about the Korean peninsula, its history and the role of the United States in that part of the world. By engaging personal stories that are unique, special, and very different from our own, we may develop new insights; understanding that the older gentleman we may see out shopping or driving may have served his country at war in Korea years before we were born, and also recognizing the tie that our history, as a nation and as individuals living in the 21st century, has to them and to their service.

Crafters Club will held on Tuesdays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. A knitting and crocheting club will held on Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Both are open to teens and adults.

The Library will be closed from Saturday, Dec. 23 until Wednesday, Dec. 27, and on Saturday, Dec. 31.
