In celebration of the Month of the Military Child (April) and Military Appreciation Month (May), the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to partner with the Maryland State Library Agency, Maryland Department of Health, and several Maryland library branches to host special reading events for military and veteran families.  

Families attending these programs will enjoy a reading of the book, Unstoppable Me, and receive their own copy for their home*.  These special reading events will also provide the opportunity for military and veteran families to connect with one another and to other community resources.
