[LIBRARY] EXTENDED: Registration for Our Heroes' Tree (for Indiana Libraries)

End Date: 11/8/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description

Registration has been extended for the Our Heroes’ Tree initiative through November 8, 2013. Our Heroes’ Tree is a national initiative founded to recognize and honor sacrifices made by the families of current and past service members. The goal of the project to support the efforts of military members and their families while providing military related programming for all ages. The popular program is hosted by the Indiana Center for the Book with support from the Indiana State Library Foundation and Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University.

The core aspect of the program is to display a tree in a visible location within the library and encourage patrons to hang ornaments featuring family members and loved one who have served our country past or present. Celebrations typically take place in the days leading up to Veterans' Day and last through the calendar year.

The Our Heroes' Tree Resource Guide for Indiana libraries lists several programming ideas and was created by the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University. This guide contains programming ideas, templates, marketing materials, ornament-making tips, and other items to help you implement the program. Whether your library is joining the program for the first time or is an OHT "veteran," the resource guide is designed to help you develop the very best program possible.

Additional programs that have been implemented by libraries throughout Indiana include adopting a soldier or platoon, assisting military families to set up a family blog, patriotic crafting ideas for children, writing letters to veterans, and hosting workshops for veterans to interact with the community. Participating are also encouraged to check out these Our Heroes’ Tree reader recommendations.
