Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the historic invasion on Normandy’s beaches June 6, 1944. At the library, we have a fascinating display of articles from that time period, as well as a number of books on the subject. We even have a poem by our very own Joe McNeill which tells a heart-felt story about his father and the D- Day invasion.
Best of all, you can pop over to our sister blog, Carleton Place Local History, to read a fascinating commemorative article about this moment and history, and see more of the photos. If you don’t visit this blog on a regular basis, you might want to take a few minutes to really look through past posts. This is your best spot to find out more about the history of Carleton Place and the people who have lived here. History is fascinating!
