Veterans' Group

Facilitated by the Library Director, Lee Ann Amend and members of Sharon's military family. For more information contact: or 781.784.1578 ext.1425.

  • Monthly meetings will no longer be held in the library due to low attendance, as our Vietnam Veterans find it more difficult to attend. Virtual programming will continue to be offered 6-8 times per year based on military, history and government related topics. We are looking for post-Vietnam Veterans who served in the Gulf Wars/Campaigns, Afghanistan and Iraq, to lead this group.
