Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27, 2013 and all of the Pioneer Library System's public libraries will be closed on Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27 as we honor those who have died in service to protect our country.
By the early 1900s, Memorial Day was a time to express memories, as many people visited the graves of lost relatives, whether or not they died in battle. Thos was also during the time where the holiday had some joy put into it as well as the mourning.
Traditional celebrations of this holiday are cookouts with family and friends, watching sports, visiting cemeteries and memorials of those we have lose, and flying the American flag at half staff from dawn until noon.

We watched in terror as the tornado made its way along the path one mile south of the Southwest Oklahoma City Library and about a block south of the Moore Public Library where 54 people were sheltering from the storm. We were so relieved when they were passed, but others were not so fortunate.
In addition, our friend and Board Member Steve Eddy is City Manager of the City of Moore and our hearts break for him and for his wife who is Director of the Red Cross as we think of all they are seeing and dealing with.
At this time I don’t know how we can help, but I will keep you informed as we learn more. Late last night the power was out in Blanchard, SOKC and Moore libraries. Those staff members should check with their supervisors as we determine plans for them and their libraries. All other libraries should be open and staff reporting normally. I’m sure many customers will need our services.
If you have information about other Pioneer staff members affected by the tornado, please let me know. We recognize that many of our customers were affected, also, and will want to know how we can help.
Anne Masters, Director of the Pioneer Library System
