Remember Memorial Day

Take a look at this page on the History Channel's website about Memorial Day. Included are videos of Veterans' experiences, a timeline of wars, a history of the holiday, maps and other images, resources for Veterans and more.
Most library Reference Departments get calls about the proper way to display the flag several times during the year. Here is the link to the Federal Citizen Information Center's online brochure about the flag.
For brochures on other topics, go to

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly "

To cite this poem:McCrae, John. "In Flanders Fields." The Columbia Granger's World of Poetry. Available at the Berkeley Heights Public Library from "Remote Databases"
