LIBRARIAN'S INTERNET INDEX


I picked a few good web-sites from last week's Email from the Librarian's Internet Index.


THE IWO JIMA FLAG-RAISING IN 3-D

"Multimedia presentation about Joe Rosenthal's Pulitizer Prize-winning photo of the second raising of the American flag on the summit of Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi on February 23, 1945. It features two types of 3-dimensional views (one requires 3-D glasses), a photo of the first flag-raising, a description of the two flag-raisings, a video, and a slideshow. "
This event carries special signifigance for us in Northern Wisconsin and at the Marathon County Public Library. Betty Bradley frequently works the check-out tables at our Friends book sales. She is the wife of one of the flag raisers on that momentous day, and mother of Jim Bradley the guy who wrote FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS that Clint Eastwood's movie is based upon.


JAMESTOWN 2007: AMERICA'S 400TH ANNIVERSARY

"Official site for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Virginia, 'settled in 1607'. It was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. The site features tourist information, an events calendar, a link to educational material, activities and games for children, and descriptions of prior commemorations in 1807, 1857, 1907, and 1957."

Also find the history of Daylight Saving Time and a schedule for its occurrence from 1990 to 2015, includes trivia about time and links to related sites."
