Parham Library Commemorates 1969

The year 1969 was a big one for the US, pop-culture, and news. It was the year of the first moon landing, Woodstock, and of course the first ever episode of TV’s The Brady Bunch, just to name a few.

If you have a chance, stop by the Parham library where we have set up a display in honor of this iconic year.

If you simply can’t wait, take a minute to check out our 1969 Spotify Playlist which includes many popular songs from the day. It is sure to inspire nostalgia and will definitely get your feet tapping. (Perhaps they’ll tap all the way over to the library?)

TIMELINE

 

June is Pride Month

LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn staged an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which LGBTQ Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ Americans.

Solar Eclipse August 21 2017

The partial Solar Eclipse is coming to Richmond at 2:44 PM this Monday, August 21, 2017.eclipse display

This display at the DTC Library shows some of the history of eclipses (with articles from the New York Times for the eclipse in January 1925), the science of eclipses and how to view the eclipse safely (where to buy the safety glasses and the pinhole method). This very cool Vox website (see below) shows a time lapse view of what you’ll see where you live.
NASA also has live video streams of the eclipse from locations across the country.
