September is for National Hispanic Heritage Month and the U.S. Constitution Week

During the month of September, 2010, the library will have two concurrent displays!

In honor of National Constitution Week, September 17-23, 2010, the first floor library display will contain items and books related to the September 17, 1787 signing of the Constitution of the United States of America.

On September 17, 2010, the ASGCC will sponsor an event from 9:15-9:45 am to celebrate Constitution Day. In front of the LTRC, there will be a “live” Statue of Liberty, cookies and a brief, fun quiz where you can test your knowledge of the Constitution. Voter registration will even be available on the Grand Lawn. Please, stop by, register to vote if you haven’t already done so, grab a cookie, take the quiz, then visit the library to view the Constitution display.
