This Veterans Day, the Wisconsin Veterans Museum is partnering with the Madison Public library and We Help One Another (WHOA!) for a special edition of the Real Life Library. Inspired by the Human Library Project, Real Life Library is a program designed to provide the opportunity for people to listen to and learn from other people's stories. The Veterans Day event will feature veterans from across the state who served in various conflicts, branches, and roles. These veterans will be 'books' that participants can 'check-out' and 'read.' The first-hand look into the experiences of veterans will help participants understand what it means to serve in the military.
Doors open at 11am for food and gathering, first checkout session begins at 11:30 am, last checkout session begins at 3 pm. This event is free and open to the public, kids under 12 with adult supervision.
