November 11, 2010 (San Diego)--San Diego County Library is honoring veterans throughout the month of November. Veterans are  encouraged to utilize dozens of online resources featured on www.sdcl.org/veterans-resources.  The Library also invites vets to submit photos and tell their story to the People’s Post online or at designated libraries, including two in East County.

 

 

The San Diego County Library Virtual branch (www.sdcl.org) is now featuring a Veterans Resource page that offers assistance in:

• Transition to civilian life
• Benefits
• Money assistance
• Jobs,
• Government
• Organizations
• History and recognition.

Veterans are encouraged to submit pictures of themselves with their library cards to libcommunity@sdcounty.ca.gov to be posted online as a tribute to those who have served our country.

 

Additionally, veterans are also being invited to tell their story and have it posted online by making an appointment with the People’s Post, a digital storytelling partnership that records stories of the San Diego community and shares them online, by calling (858) 495-5037 or visiting one of these sessions:
