Navajo Code Talkers with
Don Buzney
Tuesday, November 20, 7 PM
Main Library Meeting Room

Woodbridge Main Library presents Navajo Code Talkers, hosted by former US Marine officer and Vietnam combat veteran, Don Buzney on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 7PM. Don will explore the critical role a thousand year old language played in winning the war in the Pacific, during World War II. Don will trace the origin of their language, its specific use during the war, and the way in which the coded messages were transmitted without ever being detected by enemy soldiers. 

This program is free and open to all. No registration is required.
Volunteer Hours for
Young Adult Book Reviews

You asked, we listened. For those in need of more community service hours, you now have another option! Here’s how it works:

  • You read a book at least 100 pages in length.
  • You fill out the form we provide in the library, which includes information about the book, and a 1.5-page review (I.e., Half of the front and the entire back of the page) of the book. 
  • Turn the form in--we give you one hour of community service for every 100 pages read. So if you read a 374-page book, you get three hours.

That’s it. It’s easy! 
Fall Break in our schools is your opportunity to discover library programs and drop-in activities! Many of our programs do not require registration, but kindly click on the flyers and links to register for programs on-line or call the library locations to ensure that space is available.
