Today is the 41st celebration of Earth Day (which I know thanks to a 40th anniversary of Earth Day post by Jennifer from last year). Just like with our Cherry Blossom pic, the picture below was taken by a Library of Congress employee, Chris Carlson. He has a great photo blog.
President George Bush said that “[t]o save the Earth will require our best efforts.” In last year’s Earth Day Presidential Proclamation, President Barack Obama said that “[o]ur future is inextricably bound to our planet’s future, and we must be good stewards of our home as well as one another.” For more information on Earth Day, see the great research guide created by the Library of Congress Science Reference Services.
The entrance to our Reading Room is through a door just behind this globe.
