Constitution Day / Constitution Week
On this day in 1787, the U.S. Constitution Convention adopted the Constitution, which established and outlined the three branches of the federal government.
Also known as Constitution Day, this holiday was established by a Congressional Act in 2004. The Constitution has been amended twenty-seven times since then, including the Bill of Rights, which were the first ten amendments.
Library Card Signup Month
In 1987, then Secretary of Education William Bennett said, “Every child should obtain a library card – and use it!” During the month of September, libraries across the nation reach out to expand the ranks of their card holding members. Do your part and be sure to take a trip (or two) to the library this month.
