The library is closed for the 4th of July weekend and reopens July 6th – but we know you need to know that Holiday Trivia for your weekend BBQ’s! From our friends at Chiff here goes:
Number of places nationwide with “liberty” in their name. The most populous one is Liberty, Missouri (26,232). Iowa has more of these places than any other state: four (Libertyville, New Liberty, North Liberty and West Liberty).
Number of visits in a recent year to our national parks — a particularly scenic locale for a July 4th picnic. There were 766 million visits in a recent year to another popular picnic venue — state parks or recreation areas. Those in California (80 million), Ohio (59 million), New York (56 million), Washington (48 million) and Illinois (44 million) recorded the highest number of visits. DID YOU REMEMBER TO RESERVE THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE PARKS PASS FROM THE LIBRARY??
And then there are the Holiday mishaps…but we have you covered (no pun intended! Though I do warn you, we’ve never tried these treatments so use good judgement!) Poison Ivy Treatments, Sun burns, and those often dreaded Family Reunions! We hope you have a wonderful, safe 4th of July!!
