Library Hours During Thanksgiving Holiday

Norman Rockwell Painting - Freedom from Want

In the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims — early settlers of Plymouth Colony – held a three-day feast to celebrate a bountiful harvest. This event is generally regarded by many as the nation’s first Thanksgiving, although historians have recorded ceremonies of thanks among other groups of European settlers in North America, including British colonists in Virginia as early as 1619.

The legacy of thanks and the feast have survived since, as the event became a national holiday 151 years ago on October 3, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November as a national day of thanksgiving. In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt clarified that Thanksgiving should always be celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month.

The library will be open the following hours during the week of Thanksgiving break (November 24-29, 2015):

Tuesday, November 24 – 7:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Wednesday, November 25 – 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Thursday, November 26 – CLOSED
Friday, November 27 – CLOSED
Saturday, November 28 – CLOSED

Sunday, November 29 – Regular Fall semester hours resume

We hope everyone has a Happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday!
