Labor Day Weekend!

This weekend, many people in the United States are celebrating Labor Day, a day to honor American workers.  Did you know...

...that Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September?

BUT...the very first Labor Day was not celebrated on a Monday.  To find out what day it was, and to learn more about this holiday, read this article from America's Story from America's Library (also known as the Library of Congress).

All locations of the Allen County Public Library will be closed on Monday, September 5, in honor of Labor Day.  We will resume normal hours on Tuesday, September 6.  See you at the library!
