"Quilts of Valor Award Ceremony"

Please join us at the State Library for a Quilt of Valor Award Ceremony to honor South Carolina veterans at 10:30 am- 11:00 am on Wednesday, November 7, 2018. A Quilt of Valor is a handmade quilt of the highest quality made by volunteers of S.C. Quilts of Valor. It is a lifetime award given by civilians to veterans in an effort to convey to them that we “Thank you for your service, your sacrifice, and valor.”

Throughout this three month exhibit, quilts on display will be awarded to South Carolina veterans and active military service members from the Midlands in Awards Ceremonies held at the SC State Library. Award Ceremonies will be held at the State Library from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Wednesdays on November 7, November 14, November 28, December 5, December 12, and January 9, 2019.

This Quilts of Valor exhibit is open to the public from November 1, 2018 to January 9, 2019. For more information, please contact Virginia Pierce, Public Services Librarian, VPierce@statelibrary.sc.gov or 803-734-8646.
