On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine men signed the U.S. Constitution, which officially began the U.S. government. We recognize this day as Constitution Day and this week as Freedom Week. Take a moment this week to consider what freedom means to you. You can find more information on this memorable day at http://www.constitutionday.com. Find books on the U.S. Constitution in the library.

Teen Read Week October 7-13
Teen Read Week was created by the Young Adult Library Services Association in 1998 as an initiative to get teenagers to read more. This year the theme for Teen Read Week is "It's Written in the Stars: READ." Since this week lands on our Fall Break, it is a great time to pull out a book and read. Remember to put any book you read over Teen Read Week on your Read Fit form. Happy Reading!
