The 70th anniversary of D-Day was two days ago. However, the Indian Hills library and Department of Veterans Affairs provided one last look at their snapshots from Normandy display on Sunday.
The display included a powerpoint presentation with photographs from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.
There was also a display of World War II artifacts donated by staff and faculty from the college.
"Also, we have a bunch of the library's books, videotapes, and DVDS that are on display," said IHCC librarian Cheryl Talbert "And people will be able to check these out if they want to learn more about World War II and D-Day."
The event produced a solid response. Twenty-five people gathered on Saturday to watch the movie Ike: Countdown to D-Day.
The movie featured Tom Selleck and touched on the 90 days before D-Day and its planning process.
Patriotic music was played during the event, and cookies and punch were served to guests.
