DENVILLE, NJ-- Children got to meet and listen to stories from a retired Army veteran in an event that the library called “Military Hero Storytime.”

The hero, Denville resident Lenny LeFebvre, made his way to the library as a librarian read stories to the children in anticipation of his arrival. The first book was about a young kid who saw his military father as a national superhero. The second book was about a military dog that sniffs out explosive devices.

Once he arrived, LeFebvre read a story about animals that camouflage into their surroundings. After the story finished, LeFebvre showed the children two different camouflage jackets from his time in the Army.

The children finished the day by doing a craft to create their own camo drawing.

LeFebvre has recieved an honorable discharge but continues to work for the Army. He has traveled all over the country during his time in the service and was one week away from being sent to Iraq but a knee injury prevented his deployment.

Be sure to check the library’s website for upcoming events throughout the summer.
