Library hosts Vets Museum exhibit

The Plymouth Public Library will host a traveling exhibit from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, “Military Mascots: Fur, Feathers, and Fidelity.”

The exhibit panels will be on display from Monday, June 22 through Monday, July 29 on the library’s upper level during the library’s service hours. These 13 panels depict mascots including the eagle, “Old Abe,” roosters, a rabbit, a monkey, a lion, puppies, dogs and a homemade camel. Read information about the mascots on the exhibit panels.

An exhibit reception will be held in the library’s meeting room Monday, June 22 at 6:30 p.m. Come and find out about this exhibit, learn about library resources, and enjoy refreshments before touring the exhibit.

This exhibit fits into the library’s summer reading program theme of “Every Hero has a Story.” The library reading programs are available to all - children, young adults, and adults. Read about heroes and get prizes for reading.

View the exhibit and you will be able to see and read about mascot heroes in the military. These non-human heroes provided support, morale, stress relief, and a sense of home to those in the military while serving as a reminder that compassion can still exist in our world.

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum, located in Madison, has provided traveling exhibits in order to bring to life stories and sacrifices of Wisconsin’s veterans which will appeal to broad audiences throughout the state. This exhibit is funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
