Have you stopped by @StevensMemLib to see the poppies yet? Joe and Crystal from @Na_box_vets took a trip there today! #NorthAndoverReads

This year’s North Andover Reads* theme, Service – In Their Footsteps, celebrates the many people who served in World Wars I and II as soldiers, nurses, ambulance drivers, code breakers, phone operators and more.   Today, Joe and Crystal from Veterans Services of North Andover and Boxford took a trip to the Stevens Memorial Library to see the poppies and other materials on display (view the photos here!)   The poppies were made by students at the 5 North Andover elementary schools and the Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center and were set up with the help from North Andover Youth and Recreations’s Step Up girls. The display boxes were put together by the NAHS History Club.  An excellent job was done by all – stop by and check it out before it’s too late!

*The Stevens Memorial Library and the North Andover School District have teamed up to create the North Andover Reads initiative, aimed at bringing our community together through literature.   Each year, they aim to provide the citizens of North Andover with a celebration of literature based around a particular theme or author.
