The library will be closed Monday, September 7 in observance of Labor Day.
According to the United States Department of Labor’s website “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Labor Day has been celebrated in the United States for over 125 years, with the first celebration being held on September 5, 1882 in New York City.
