Presidents’ Day

Posted by Library Blog on 01/26/2017 at 09:29 AM

Presidents’ Day this year is Monday, February 20th. It was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, but has become a more general celebration of US Presidents. While some associate the holiday with car sales, some associate the holiday with bicycles, and some associate the holiday with snow, here at the library, we associate the holiday with books!

As you enter the library this week, you will find a collection of books which feature presidents generally, but Washington and Lincoln, specifically. To learn more about the books contained in the collection, see the LawGuide, Presidents' Day: The Collection. You can also find the books featured on our Pinterest page!

If you are interested in a deeper dive into Presidential history, also check out HeinOnline’s U.S. Presidential Library or this National Archives’ site about Presidential Libraries.
