Independence Day is often celebrated with a boisterous bevy of barbecues, parties, and fireworks.
Sometimes, unfortunately, the reasons behind our revelry are forgotten. This year, add some knowledge
to your celebrations with a stop at your Rapides Parish Library.
This summer, you can request one of the numerous books and movies about the history of the Fourth of
July or explore fictionalized narratives regarding the events that birthed our country. Your local library
has a wide variety of options to fit any interest. Check these related items.
