Library and WQED Celebrate Service Members and Their Families


In partnership with WQED Education, Peters Township Public Library will be hosting a family friendly event to celebrate and honor local service members and their families over Veterans Day weekend.

Peters Township Public Library will host Welcome Home: Celebrating Veterans and Their Families on Saturday, November 10 from noon until 2:00 p.m. Service members and their young families will enjoy a meet-and-greet with Katerina Kittycat from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, refreshments, a caricature artist, and a special performance by Pittsburgh Magician Al Mazing at 1 p.m. All are welcome to attend this event. Registration is requested online or call 724.941.9430 #1.

This event is part of a Veterans Coming Home grant that WQED received from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). Veterans Coming Home is a collaborative, multi-platform effort to highlight innovative, effective programs and individuals that are leading the way to better outcomes for service members as they transition to civilian life.

“Military service extends beyond the person who directly answers the call to serve to encompass the whole family,” said Gina Masciola, manager of education projects. “It is important that we thank service members for the sacrifices they make, but this event also allows us to draw attention to and celebrate the service of their families as well. Libraries are the perfect community partner to host these thank you events as they are an integral part of the communities they serve.”

For more information, call the library at 724.941.9430 #1.
