The Library is closed today in celebration of Columbus Day.
"Why do we celebrate Columbus Day?" is a question that is raised yearly. There are two sides to every story, and we have plenty of library materials that explore Columbus, his discoveries and their aftermath, and the holiday. One such book is Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years edited by Bill Bigelow and Bob Peterson [970.01 RET].
However you celebrate, or ignore, the day, have a safe one and we'll see you when we reopen tomorrow at 9:00 AM.
