The Library is closed today to celebrate the Labor Day holiday.
In our area, the northeast, labor history is marked by the textile mills that sprang up in the 1800s and operated for about 100 years before most were closed down. Textile workers, both native born and immigrant worked long and hard. Today is a day to honor their labor, and to be thankful that labor organizers brought health, safety, and human rights issues to the forefront, which resulted in laws that improved the lives of all Americans.
See you tomorrow at 9 AM.
