Inauguration Sites

Hello, everyone. Sorry about the lack of updates-it's been very busy here. We had a patron looking for inauguration sites for children, and since I thought this might be a question asked several times today, I thought I would do a post about it. It's easy to find books on presidential history, but not so much with websites just for children. I couldn't find anything specifically on the inauguration (that are any good) just for children, but there are several excellent sites on presidential history. Here are a few of them:

PBS Kids has a good presidential history site.

The Smithsonian has a great presidential history site just for children.

The History Channel has an excellent presidential history site as well, including information on Barack Obama.

Bartleby's has the text of past inauguration speeches.

Older children and adults should look at the Library of Congress's overview of past inaugurations.
