The Calvin T. Ryan Library will be closed July 3-5, 2015, in observance of the Independence Day Holiday. Regular Summer session hours will resume on Monday, July 6th.
On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. As always, this most American of holidays will be marked by parades, fireworks and backyard barbecues across the country. Here are some interesting facts compiled by the United States Census Bureau.
We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend!
