Labor Day is coming!
Labor Day 2014!
First, in case you didn't realize it, Labor Day Weekend is coming up this weekend! I just wanted to remind everyone that the Library will be CLOSED on:
Sunday, August 31
Monday, September 1
So besides a long weekend and what many people consider the official end of Summer, why do we have Labor Day?
Well, according to the US Department of Labor website:
Labor Day: How it Came About; What it MeansLabor 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.
So while you are having a last hurrah BBQ, going to the pool one last time, or going on that last long weekend vacation, go on and celebrate the hard working Americans that make our lives so great!
