Memorial Day is May 28, 2018. This is traditionally a time for remembering those who lost their lives serving during wartime. The Albertsons Library and the rest of campus will be closed that day. On Memorial Day, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion will be present at the Morris Hill Cemetery for Memorial Day ceremonies.
It is also a time to remember family and friends who have passed on. Audrey Williams put together a display at the Circulation Desk of materials about Memorial Day, eulogies, remembrances, cemeteries, funerals, posthumous tributes, and more. Stop by the display and take a look, and if you find something interesting you can check it out.
The library’s collection contains ebooks on topics such as:
- Deathscapes: spaces for death, dying, mourning and remembrance
- Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial
- Soldier dead: how we recover, identify, bury, and honor our military fallen
Take some time to remembers those who have passed on and have a safe, peaceful Memorial Day.
