For Independence Day, Odum Library will close at 5 pm, Thursday, July 3rd and reopen at 9 am on Saturday, July 5th.
Along with the customary holiday festivities, you might enjoy these activities and facts for July 4th:
- USA.gov provides an array of information about the United States flag–its history, care, presentation, for instance. You can even request to own a flag that has flown over the U.S. Capitol.
- Take a fresh look at the Declaration of Independence and other documents important to the history of the United States.
- Listen to John Philip Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever, courtesy of the American Memory Project from the Library of Congress.
- Join the National Mall Independence Day Celebration if you’ll be in the Washington, DC, area for the 4th, or find special events at other national parks across the country.
Once you’re done observing your holiday, remember that Odum Library, as a member of the Federal Depository Library Program, is a rich resource for government information and publications available for all members of the community, not just VSU staff and students. Come see the government documents collection on Odum Library’s second floor, explore our online resources, and seek help from our dedicated librarians!
