Davis Library Closed for Presidents' Day Holiday Weekend

Just a reminder…

In observance of the Presidents’ Day Holiday Weekend, Davis Library will be CLOSED all day Saturday, February 16th & Sunday, February 17th and during the daytime hours of Monday, February 18th.

Davis Library will REOPEN for evening hours from 5-10 p.m. on Monday, January 18, 2013 (Presidents’ Day.)

While the official federal holiday celebrated on third Monday of February is actually Washington’s Birthday in honor of George Washington, our nation’s first president, who was born February 22, 1732, its celebration is also associated with birthdate of Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President who was born February 12, 1809.   

More recently, the observance has been expanded to recognize and honor the Office of the Presidency and the important role that position plays in the governing of our country.
