Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27, 2013 and all of the Pioneer Library System's public libraries will be closed on Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27 as we honor those who have died in service to protect our country.
By the early 1900s, Memorial Day was a time to express memories, as many people visited the graves of lost relatives, whether or not they died in battle. Thos was also during the time where the holiday had some joy put into it as well as the mourning.
Traditional celebrations of this holiday are cookouts with family and friends, watching sports, visiting cemeteries and memorials of those we have lose, and flying the American flag at half staff from dawn until noon.

When tragedies happen we try to shield our children from the hurt and pain, but sometimes our kids find out more than we would like. Here are some recommended books and DVDs by librarians and psychologists to help parents talk with their children that may have questions and concerns. These titles may help children who may be grief-stricken, afraid or troubled.
It is suggested that these books are to be shared together and create an open discussion between parents and their children.
If you ever need additional assistance in finding suggested reads, never hesitate to contact your hometown librarian - we are here to help. Also, you are welcome to share your own recommendations in the comments below.
