Plaque at Rockville Memorial Library Recognizes Fallen War Heroes

Library Plaque

A plaque recently dedicated at the Rockville Memorial Library recognizes the name change from the original Rockville Library.

The name change for the branch of the Montgomery County Public Libraries system was instituted in 2010 at the request of Gold Star families — those who have lost family members in U.S. military conflicts — and the County Commission on Veterans Affairs.

The plaque is located in the first-floor lobby, next to a digital display honoring county residents killed in action from World War I onward.

“The Rockville Memorial Library is one of the finest libraries in our system, and having it named in memory of county residents killed in action is an appropriate tribute,” County Executive Marc Elrich said.
