Celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II
Celebrations of 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign will be held June 2-5, 2012. This occasion will be marked by a Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant June 3, 2012, when the Queen's barge leads a seven-mile-long flotilla of 1,000 vessels decorated in Union Jacks and streamers through London down the Thames River. You may not be able to attend, but you most certainly can check out books from the library all about Queen Elizabeth II, her family and travel books about London.
